Join Litquake for this singular evening of music, words, and multimedia celebrating the 100th birthday of America’s “Oklahoma Cowboy.” Woody Guthrie was nothing less than a unique and extraordinary singer/songer, folk musician, poet, and author of hundreds of political songs, children’s tunes, and ballads, many of them performed on a guitar bearing the message “This Machine Kills Fascists.” His music has been sung by and influenced generations of musicians, including Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, and Billy Bragg. With Steve Earle, Guthrie biographer Ed Cray, host Country Joe McDonald, Jill Olson (with Paula Frazer and Kim Fowler), Alan Kaufman, Francisco Alarcon, Chris Carlsson, Bryan McPherson, Jay Farrar, Eddy Joe Cotton, and many surprise guests!
Co-presented by KALW 91.7FM
