One hundred years after Woody Guthrie's birth we are still singing his songs and they are as relevant as ever. On Saturday night, November 17th of this year, artists got together in Manhattan to remember his words and music and raise funds for a progressive venue in the spirit of Woody's work and message.
Steve Suffet produced and hosted the evening at The Peoples' Voice Cafe. Performers included Steve, Anne Price, Joel Landy, Toby Fagenson, Gina Tlamsa and The Solidarity Singers.
I recorded the event and edited three episodes of my Songs of Freedom television program. I have uploaded them here on You Tube as well. I hope you enjoy them.
This is the first of the three episodes and includes work from all the artists mentioned above.
The evening was warm and friendly and generated $1,300 for the PVC to continue doing the work that it does. I think Woody would approve.

Take care. Be well. And I'll see you down that old dusty road. Or online. Or on TV.
