Berkeley Springs visitor and musician ...

Berkeley Springs visitor and musician Trudy Morgal has no idea who snapped the photo of her at the Woodstock festival. In it, she's sitting on top of their band's painted Volkswagen gig bus with Rick Peters, another Light band member.

The photo was circulated widely around the United States and the world. It's considered an iconic image of the three-day music festival that took place on August 15-17, 1969 that half a million people peacefully attended.
Morgal didn't know the photo had been taken until she saw it in the Baltimore Sun's Maryland section issued at the festival's 20th anniversary.
...
The wheels and steering wheel move and they even put amps and guitar cases in it, Morgal said.
When she went to Woodstock, Morgal said she never dreamed that one day she'd be holding a replica of her band's festival bus in her hand.
Morgal was also interviewed and quoted extensively in the 40th anniversary book about the festival called Woodstock: Peace, Music and Memories.
How they got there Morgal was a drummer and vocalist for Light, a Baltimore-based band that played six nights a week.
...
Morgal said that Janis Joplin was great at Woodstock and hung out with the crowd before performing.
...
Morgal stood on two milk crates to get a good view and couldn't believe she didn't fall. For her as a drummer, the funk band was one of the highlights.
Supplies scarce No one had much food or anything with them. Morgal said they bought watermelon and had three cans of peaches.
As Morgal walked back from filling a jug with water, she gave away so many sips of water that she had none left. People were so parched and would ask for a drink of water. You were glad to help someone out, she said.
...
Woodstock was all about peace, love and sharing everything you had, Morgal said. It was a very relaxed, giving, caring atmosphere. Everyone was great together. She never saw an argument. The band jumped in a lake on the way home from Woodstock. They were so dirty that Morgal said she expected to see dead fish pop up, but they had so much fun.
Then & now Morgal said Light was together for six to eight years. They performed around Baltimore, in New York, at the Lyric Theatre and on American Bandstand. The band made four single recordings and had a couple of shots at the big time that didn't work out. They eventually broke up.
Morgal continued playing music as a solo performer and in a duo with another Light member.
"The Voice" audition Morgal auditioned in New York City in July for the television show "The Voice. A sendoff party and jam for Morgal was held at Earthdog Café.
While she did well at her audition and was asked to continue onto the next round in another city, Morgal chose not to pursue it at this time. She has been having some vocal cord issues.
The training for the show is rigorous. While therapy has helped Morgal get some vocal range back, she said she would have been competing with a handicap. Morgal is going to wait after her voice heals from upcoming surgery and possibly try out again for a future show.
Morgal divides her time between visiting close friends and Earthdog owners Paul and Susie Allen here and staying at the Maryland shore.
