Joe will present a new autobiographical show that combines narrative with songs. This will be the debut performance that he plans to later take on the road.|
In 2001 Country Joe 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."
Country Joe McDonald made his mark on popular culture at Woodstock in 1969. He became a musical fixture of the anti-Vietnam War demonstrations with his heartfelt songs inspired by his recent military service. Hundreds of thousands used to sing, "And it's 1,2,3,4, what are we fighting for? Don't ask me, I don't give a damn! The next stop is Vietnam! And it's 5,6,7,8 open up the pearly gates! Well, there ain't no time to wonder why! Whoopee! We're all gonna die!"
In the historic Fellowship Hall at BFUU!
