Woody Guthrie: Hard Times & Hard Travelin' Written and Performed by Will Kaufman Saturday 8th November 2014 8pm

A captivating stage show that sets the songs of Woody Guthrie in the context of the American 1930s - the Dust Bowl, the Depression, the New Deal and the state of popular music itself.

Hear hard-hitting Guthrie songs from 'Vigilante Man', and 'I Ain't Got No Home' to other songs of the Depression Era - from Joe Hill's 'The Preacher and the Slave' to 'Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?'.

These renditions, with historical commentary, exemplify the blending of music and radical politics that marks Guthrie's most powerful and evocative work.

"No one can understand the American people without listening to Woody Guthrie. Will Kaufman's doing important work here." - Tom Paxton
