Woodstock historian and author Alf Evers (1905-2004) did amazing work on preserving the story of the town he loved and called home. Recently, it was decided to undertake the epic task of digitizing his massive archives—no cheap task, to do it using the quality methods it deserves. Thus, the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild will be hosting “Alf-Scan,” a special benefit concert on August 29.

Gathering at the event to sing and to celebrate the digitizing of these historic photographs and images are local musicians Amy Fradon, Leslie Ritter, Scott Petito, Jules Shear, Marc Black, Tom Pacheco, Brian Hollander, Mikhail Horowitz, Gilles Malkine, Ed Sanders, and Michael Veitch with Julie Last.

Here’s one of the performers, Jules Shear, doing a fine rendition of the Beatles’ “Sexy Sadie” in 2015—while holding a dog, named, presumably, Sadie:

“Alf-Scan” will take place on August 29 at 8pm at Byrdcliffe’s Kleinert/James Center for the Arts in Woodstock. Tickets are $25 (Byrdcliffe members: $22). For more information, call (845) 679-2079, or visit
