Pure Prairie League at Bethel Woods


November 3, 2011

BETHEL, NY — The country-rock pioneers Pure Prairie League will take the stage at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Friday, November 11, at 8 p.m. The performance is a part of the Fall 2011 Event Gallery Concert Series, which features an eclectic array of artists in an intimate setting.

When Pure Prairie League formed in the late 1960s, no one had put a label on the music they played. Although the band drew heavily from 1960s rock, the group added a heavy dose of country and high-flying harmony that gave it a unique sound soon to be known as country-rock. Pure Prairie League reached mainstream radio listeners by the mid-1970s as their single “Amie” climbed the Billboard charts. Pure Prairie League continued to record, tour, and place singles on the charts as they established a new music style.

Reserved seats cost $52 in advance, $57 day of show. Full bar service and light dining fare is available at all performances. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale at www.BethelWoodsCenter.org, Ticketmaster, or by calling 800/745-3000.
