Sweetwater was one of the best and most innovative bands to come out of the '60's. Instead of electric guitars they used flute, cello, and Latin percussion. They were also the first Multi-Cultural rock band. Sweetwater was the first band to play at the Woodstock Festival on August 16, 1969. Less than four months later, on Dec. 8, 1969, singer Nancy Nevins was hit by a drunk driver and pemanently lost the use of one vocal chord. Doctors said she would never sing again, but after a couple years and much hard work, she proved them wrong. Sweetwater was never able to get it together again, though. Nancy is a friend, and I must say she is the strongest and most resilient person I know. I have always said that about myself. She's also a REAL artist. This is the third of my paintings chosen for a poster at the Granada for the Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts. The painting is dedicated "With Admiration to Nancy Nevins."
