American folk musician Woody Guthrie (pictured) is the subject of a charity event at the People’s History Museum. Will Kaufman’s Woody Guthrie: Hard Times and Hard Travelin’ is billed as a ‘live documentary’, featuring performances of Guthrie’s songs in context of the period he was active – namely the Dust Bowl, the Depression and the New Deal eras. The evening will include a pre-screening ‘hot one-bowl supper’ with Kaufman, singer, multi-instrumentalist and professor of American literature and culture at the University of Central Lancashire, plus a Q&A and the chance to purchase his book, Woody Guthrie, American Radical. All proceeds from the event will go towards the People’s History Museum.
