From “This Land Is Your Land” to “Bound For Glory,” Woody Guthrie was the original folk hero who proved that you can strum a revolution and do it with joy. Guthrie’s songs celebrated the beauty of America, the people he met crisscrossing the nation, the history he absorbed and the social issues of his day. He brought a free spirit to popular music and his impact still thrives today in folk, rock, country – and even hip-hop. In this new toe-tapping, heart-filled musical event for all generations, four actor-musicians perform 25 of Guthrie’s songs, play 15 instruments, and celebrate the colorful life and rich musical legacy of this American icon.
