Woody Guthrie: Hard Times and Hard Travellin'
WOODY GUTHRIE: HARD TIMES AND HARD TRAVELLIN' is
a 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. In the presentation, Will Kaufman brings
such hard-hitting Guthrie songs as "Vigilante Man", "Pretty Boy Floyd"
and "I Ain't Got No Home" into conversation with other relevant songs,
from Joe Hill's "The Preacher and the Slave" to "Brother, Can You Spare a
Dime?". These renditions, buttressed by detailed historical commentary,
exemplify the blending of music and radical politics that marks Guthrie's
most powerful and evocative work.

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

"I thank Will Kaufman for introducing a new generation of
Europeans to 'the Other America'. It's a wonderful job he's doing."
- Pete Seeger

WILL KAUFMAN is a singer, guitarist and Professor of American
Literature and Culture at the University of Central Lancashire. In 2008 he
was awarded a BMI-Woody Guthrie Fellowship. His book, Woody Guthrie,
American Radical will be published in 2011 by the University of Illinois
Press.
