The Peterborough Concert Series will present Canned Heat for a night of classic rock on Saturday, Sept. 24, at 8 p.m. at the Peterborough Town House, 1 Grove St.

Canned Heat’s 57-year-long career has ranged from headlining Woodstock and the untimely death of two founding members. Formed in Los Angeles in 1965, the group was launched by blues enthusiasts Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson and Bob “The Bear” Hite and took its name from Tommy Johnson's 1928 "Canned Heat Blues", a song about an alcoholic who had desperately turned to drinking Sterno, called "canned heat.”

Three of their songs — "Going Up the Country," "On the Road Again" and "Let's Work Together" — became international hits. Drummer Adolfo "Fito" de la Parra joined the band right after its Monterey Pop performance in 1967 and has continued to move the band forward.

Tickets range from $35 to $55 and are available at the Toadstool Bookshop in Peterborough or online at
