Delta Queen Steamboat to Resume River Voyages


New owners of the historic Delta Queen Steamboat, based in Kimmswick, Missouri, plan to resume overnight voyages on inland waterways in 2020. Leah Ann Ingram, vice president and chief operating officer of the Delta Queen Steamboat Company, said, “The Delta Queen is an American icon that offers a nostalgic experience unlike any other vessel. Since 2010, restoring and returning her to overnight service has been our mission.” After the paddlewheeler undergoes an extensive renovation at a shipyard in Houma, Louisiana, themed voyages will operate on the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Cumberland, Kanawha and Arkansas rivers.

Woodstock turns 50 at Rock & Roll Hall of Fame


Woodstock at 50 will celebrate the highlights and impact of the historic Woodstock music festival that took place over one rainy three-day weekend in August 1969. In the late 1960s, music became the counterculture’s most significant cultural expression, and Woodstock became its touchstone. Groups and artists such as Jefferson Airplane, Sly & The Family Stone, The Who, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and many others defined the new sound. Rare artifacts from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s collection will celebrate everything from the ingenuity of those who mounted the festival to the performers who played it. (
