Woody Guthrie: Hard Times and Hard Travellin'
By Dr. Will Kaufman
Will Kaufman’s WOODY GUTHRIE: HARD TIMES AND HARD TRAVELLIN’ is a captivating “live documentary” 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. Such hard-hitting Guthrie songs as “Vigilante Man”, “Pretty Boy Floyd” and “I Ain’t Got No Home” are brought into conversation with other relevant songs - from Joe Hill’s “The Preacher and the Slave” to “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?” Altogether the show highlights the blending of music and radical politics that marks Guthrie’s most powerful work.
