About This Show

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.
