Event

Country Joe McDonald's Tribute to Woody Guthrie
In this highly entertaining tribute to Woody Guthrie, Country Joe McDonald deftly conveys all the charm, talent, and social and political consciousness of the legendary folksinger from Oklahoma.

In 2001 McDonald was asked by the National Steinbeck Center to give a performance as part of its display of the Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition "This Land Is Your Land: The Life and Legacy of Woody Guthrie."  This served as a reason for him to revisit his connection with Woody Guthrie and the state of Oklahoma. Country Joe's father, Worden "Mac" McDonald, grew up in the little Oklahoma town of Sallisaw, 100 miles from the Woodys birthplace of Okemah. His father was a farm boy and hobo like Woody.

McDonald's tribute incorporates all the good stuff, and the hard stuff, including Woodys sad decline from the disease he inherited from his mother, union struggles during the Great Depression, migrant life on the trail from the Dust Bowl to California.
