Bob Dylan wrote that Woody Guthrie’s works “had the infinite sweep of humanity in them.” As he roamed the country singing such songs as “Bound for Glory,” “This Land is Your Land,” and “Hard Travelin’,” Guthrie gave voice to the powerless. Journey with us as we celebrate this great storyteller and visionary.
Woody Guthrie's American Song is an ensemble musical theatre piece adapted from the songs and writings of America's premier folk poet. The show uses Guthrie's own storytelling to create narrative contexts for his music. He said that his work was inspired by this great country and the people who fought to find meaning and fulfillment in their lives as they wandered through. Woody Guthrie's American Song brings the challenges of the past into striking relief with the issues we still face today.
