Hitch a ride with Woody Guthrie on a journey through his life from the boom bust childhood in Oklahoma to the cold canyons of New York City. See America’s dust bowl baladeer perform in boxcar, picket line, street corner and concert hall.

With an incredible cast of actor-musicians, ‘This Land’ weaves Guthrie’s legendary songs into a story that reveals the man behind the myth in a life that was at once a tragedy, comedy, romance and satire, as told by the underdogs and itinerants.

 

 

Woody Guthrie is the original folk hero. It was Guthrie who, in the Thirties and Forties, transformed the folk ballad into social protest and observation. Through his work, he paved the way for Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and a host of other songwriters who have been moved to tell their stories and challenge society with power and passion.

‘This Land – The Story of Woody Guthrie’ returns to tells the story of one of the twentieth centuries most influential American folk singers and political activists.
