Woody Guthrie

Saturday October 05

 

Presented by: Melbourne Create Music Company

 

Celebrate one of the greatest folk singers of all time with this unique concert dedicated to his songs of freedom, social justice and against inequality.

 

In a world where bigotry, racism, violence and inequality are seemingly on the rise, this show, built around Woody’s songs, is a timely reminder of the universal power of great folk music to celebrate humanity and to give voice to the struggles of ordinary people for a better world.

 

Led by the musical prowess of Bruce Hearn (from Melbourne ska legends, Strange Tenants) & The Machinists & Special guesst ERIC BOGLE features icons of Australia’s folk/roots music scene, including Mic Conway (Captain Matchbox), Margret Roadnight, Jan Wositzky (Bushwhackers), Kavisha Mazzella , Melbourne Trade union choir.

 

Help keep the flame alive and experience the power of Woody’s music, with his messages as relevant in today’s political climate as they were when he first wrote them back in the 30s and 40s
