Will Kaufman's Woody Guthrie: hard times and hard travellin' is a "live documentary" that sets Guthrie's songs in the context of the American 1930s - the Dust Bowl, the Depression, the New Deal and the state of popular music itself. The show highlights the blending of music and radical politics that marks Guthrie's most powerful work. More information at
