How could it be, you ask, that Oregon contributed literary hippie heavyweights Ken Kesey and Richard Brautigan to American counterculture, and yet we had no musicians present at Woodstock?

The answer is that didn’t happen. Of course there was an Oregonian on that stage. Just because Tim Hardin’s performance did not make it into Michael Wadleigh’s 1970 documentary Woodstock , doesn’t mean he wasn’t there.

See for yourself in Woodstock: The Lost Performances.

Tim Hardin (1941 – 1980) was born and raised in Eugene. He was most famous for writing “If I Were A Carpenter”, the song he performed on August 15, 1969, on the fields of Max Yasgur’s upstate New York farm, to an audience of  ”half a million strong”.

I hereby claim Woodstock: The Lost Performances as an Oregon film on the basis of singer-songwriter Tim Hardin’s performance, documented in that film.
