Bearsville Theater

About Us

Bearsville Theater isn’t just another nightly music venue in a beautiful place, or a tourist stop on the Catskill Trail. It is hallowed ground.

The heartbeat of the small Catskill town of Woodstock, Bearsville, and all that transpired in this small hamlet on the edge of Woodstock, created the music revolution of the sixties.

Albert Grossman’s, legendary music manager built the Bearsville Theater. His artists were leaders of the uprising. Bob Dylan took the safe and cosy world of folk music and married it to Rock & Roll. Folk went electric. The blending, reinventing, lyrical music of The Band launched the new genre of Americana.  Janis Joplin took a breath and recuperated from her shows before launching her riotous, rebellious female energy and heart stopping songs out into the world. Alongside the hundreds of musicians who have lived and played music in Woodstock, these artists set alight the nature of recorded and performed music in America. 

Today, after a $5M rennovation by music lover and entreprenuer Lizzie Vann, Bearsville Theater strives to be the musical heartbeat of Woodstock once more.

We aim to nurture and inspire future generations with ground-breaking and exciting new music, honoring the legacy of Albert Grossman and countless Woodstock artists. Bearsville Theater offers an acoustically perfect live theater stage, state-of-the-art streaming platforms, and the famed Utopia Sound Stage.
