Songs for Any Depression
The songs of Woody Guthrie became the soundtrack for one of the most tumultuous periods in American history -- times that were never more relevant than they are right now.  Guthrie's granddaughter Sara Lee Guthrie and her husband Johnny Irion, along with the storytelling folk duo Kim and Reggie Harris, present a concert of songs that inspired and empowered common folk through the hardest of times.  Conversations with historian Julia Foulkes and author/scholar Morris Dickstein (Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the Great Depression), and a multimedia presentation including photos and readings from first-person narratives, brings to life the rich documentary culture that came of age during the 1930's.  Hosted by Gene Shay.
