Bert Sommer played at Woodstock. According to multiple sources - Bert was the third act up on the first day. Friday was acoustic and folk music day. Based on the available daylight when he appeared in the film - he probably went on around 7 pm. He likely played a :45 minute set that included these ten songs: Jennifer, The Road to Travel, I Wondered Where You Be, She's Gone, Things Are Going My Way, And When It's Over, Jeanette, America, A Note That Read, and Smile. He was joined on stage by Charlie Bilello on bass and Ira Stone on guitar, organ, and harmonica. He played a ten-song set. He followed the band Sweetwater, and Tim Hardin came on after Bert.
