The Secret City Art Revival in Woodstock, New York is a weekend of art, community and celebration throughout the town. This year’s event is entitled “Back to The Garden.”

Events take place July 25-28 and include parties, concerts, puppeteer-led hat-making; house events that include poetry readings, jazz house concerts, site-specific dances, art salons; brunch, karaoke, a Community Processional and – the culminating event – The Artistic Tent Revival.

The Secret City is an Obie Award winning arts organization that programs regularly in New York, Los Angeles, and Woodstock with guest appearances in other parts of the country and a weekly radio show in Kingston, New York.

We are joined by Secret City Founding Artistic Director Chris Wells and Lead designer of the Sunday processional and the Sunday revival Nancy Geaney.

Author and Rolling Stone contributing editor Rob Sheffield spends a lot of time listening to music. He is one of those music fans who can recall Britny Fox and Twisted Sister b-sides with the same enthusiasm other people have for The Beatles. Actually, he loves them too.

But aside from some mean tambourining at rock and roll fantasy camp, Sheffield, who is familiar to VH1 viewers, has never been very musically inclined — when many of his peers were trying to make it in underground indie bands, he was the guy at the bar scribbling notes.
