Find Woodstock's Most Promising Music Acts

A strong musical history resides in Woodstock. Things to do here are highly concentrated on preserving a significant standard of true music talent. Raw musicians form the local music scene in Woodstock and there are several different places to truly find the best music acts in town.

John Street Jam
The Dutch Arms Chapel
16 John Street
Saugerties, New York 12477

John Street Jam is one of the best places to find wonderful music acts. It's located about 15 minutes from your Woodstock Bed and Breakfast and many Woodstock acts visit the venue on nights of the music jam. On the second and fifth Saturday of every month, eight of the best musicians perform for a small audience. Half of the performers start off the evening and after a short intermission the other half will finish off the night. The artists perform in the center of the audience, which is seated around them in a circle. This living-room style performance gives the entire night a very intimate feeling and makes the audience feel as if they're receiving a private showing. Music styles range from rock, blues, folk and even some ragtime. Stories are shared by the acts and some authentic songs are played. Admission to this magical evening of music is only $5 per person. Doors open at 7:00 pm and music begins at 7:30 pm.

Alchemy of Woodstock
297 Tinker Street
Woodstock, New York 12498

Alchemy of Woodstock is much more than a place to hear some of the greatest up-and-coming acts in Woodstock. Things to do here include grabbing a cup of coffee, gazing at inspiring artwork, purchasing a book, and listening to live music. Don't let the charming two-story, porch-lined building fool you. This place is home to some of the most genuine acoustic acts in Woodstock. Performers play their songs in a cozy setting complete with a fireplace and stained glass windows. Both emerging local acts and some nationally known musicians play in this intimate space. Alchemy of Woodstock embraces the idea of creativity and that can easily be seen by any visitor to this unique music venue.
