The THE BAND Band to bring Stage Fright to Woodstock Playhouse

The THE BAND Band brings “Stage Fright” to The Woodstock Playhouse for anniversary shows in August.

Recorded in Woodstock 51 years ago, at the site of the original Woodstock Playhouse, Stage Fright was The Band’s third studio album, featuring two of its best-known songs, “The Shape I’m In” and the eponymous “Stage Fright,” both of which became staples at the Canadian American group’s live shows.

While the COVID pandemic delayed a true 50th-year celebration of the album, The THE BAND Band (the only nationally touring band dedicated exclusively to the accurate reproduction of The Band’s music) has announced that it is bringing it back to the Woodstock Playhouse on August 27 and 28, with authentic, true-to-form renditions of the ten featured album tracks and others from an extraordinary repertoire. For this special event, The THE BAND Band will be accompanied by the TTBB Horns and special guest Larry Packer on fiddle, who played with The Band at The Last Waltz, the seminal concert at San Francisco’s Winterland Arena on Thanksgiving Day, 1976.
