Woody Gutherie: Hard Times And Hard Travelin'

Will Kaufman’s Woody Guthrie: Hard Times and Hard Travelin’ 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. Altogether the show highlights the blending of music and radical politics that marks Guthrie’s most powerful work. Will has performed this show at major music festivals (Glastonbury; Bath; Whitby; The Big Session), literary festivals (Shetland WordPlay; Chester) and theatres on both sides of the Atlantic. Will

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

“His presentation is accomplished with great musicality, wit, honesty, and compassion … I urge everyone to see this show and find out more about the man who inspired so many” Ralph McTell
