THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND: THE LIFE AND SONG OF WOODY GUTHRIE

MAY 23 @ 2:00 PM

Woody Guthrie, the iconic bard and singer-songwriter, created music that is part of the collective memory and shared culture of generations of Americans who grew up in the mid-20th century. The messages of his songs, such as “This Land is Your Land”“Do Re Mi”“Pastures of Plenty”“Hobo’s Lullaby”“Union Maid”“This Train”“Sinking of the Ruben James”“Deportee” and others, provide insight into Depression-era America. This was a time when Dust Bowl refugees left their ravaged farms in search of a better life and into Guthrie’s own fascinating connections to both the Communist Party and the Jewish culture.
