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.
Told in his own words, our theatre production ‘This Land – The Story of Woody Guthrie’ returns to tell the story of his life.
