It’s a very special edition of Matt and Emily for Wednesday! Today, Matt holds a lengthy palaver with a living legend: a folk singer who has played in front of millions of people over a musical career spanning 40-plus years. The one and only Richie Havens is on the Matt and Emily show, and it is utterly awesome.
Hear about what it was like opening Woodstock, playing the Isle of Wight Festival, acting with Richard Pryor, meeting the Dalai Lama, getting a standing ovation on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, the list goes on and on. A movie about him wouldn’t be enough – it would have to be a miniseries. Check it!
