Guitarist Carlos Santana rose to fame in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band Santana, which pioneered rock and roll and Latin American jazz. He experienced a resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s with his collaboration with Rob Thomas on the song "Smooth" from the 1999 Santana album Supernatural.

In 2015, Rolling Stone listed him at number 20 on their list of 100 greatest guitarists. He's won 10 Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his band in 1988.

Carlos Santana is no stranger to the Hudson Valley with of course his Woodstock history and multiple return visits to Bethel Woods over the years. He was also spotted just last summer in Kingston, NY dining at a popular restaurant while in town for a performance at a Miles Davis tribute concert.

Many big tours announced this week so far including AC/DC, Neil Young, Pearl Jam and Robert Plant Alison Krauss, and Santana among others. Santana and Counting Crows are going out on the Oneness Tour with more than two dozen shows this summer as reported by Ultimate Classic Rock. One of the stops will be at Bethel Woods in July, the site of the original 1969 Woodstock Festival.
