Insurance commissioner knows his rock festivals

Some Miscellany readers may define the height of serendipity as discovering in the British Library archives Ted Hughes’ “missing link” poem about Sylvia Plath. But for me it would be happening onto a blog “moderated by North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin about matters of public policy, candidates, issues, etc.” that somehow includes a richly illustrated account of the Peach Tree Celebration rock festival in Rockingham in 1972.

The Peach Tree, held at North Carolina Motor Speedway,  was recalled briefly in comments on this on the Love Valley Rock Festival — thanks for the details, Commissioner!
