Concert: Hard Travelin’ with Woody

October 1, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


The first of our Home Routes concert series, Hard Travelin’ with Woody is an award-winning multimedia solo show featuring the music and artworks of Woody Guthrie, America’s iconic folk singer, saint-of-the-workingman and poet-of-the-people. Hop a box car through the Dustbowl and commune with Woody’s spirit, stories and songs as he plays for a union meeting of striking mine workers on the verge of yielding to vigilante violence. This is a play about a concert that Woody might have performed in an Oklahoma union hall in the late 1940s.
The show has been touring far and wide since it premiered at The New York International Fringe Festival in 2011.
“Captures the spirit of Woody, solid, entertaining work that should travel far and wide in these hard times, just like Guthrie himself.” – The Huffington Post
“A constant delight.” – NYtheatre.com
“Blows the dust off Guthrie’s standards, rescuing it from mere homage, transforming it into a call for united action against greed.” – Backstage.com
Home Routes offers a series of 6 concerts, held between October and April of each year. The performers travel a 3-week circuit of ” house concerts” in Ontario and Quebec. This will be the third season that Arbor Gallery has Home Routes. http://www.homeroutes.ca/
All Home Routes concerts are $20.00 each or 6 for $100
(Purchase either a series ticket or get together with 5 friends for an individual concert). We share pot luck snacks and drinks in the break between sets. This year you will be able to buy your tickets directly or by etransfer through the Gallery. Advance booking recommended. [email protected]
