Celebrate 'Woody' at New Dominion
The New Dominion Bookshop will host Will Kaufman, author of the new book "Woody Guthrie, American Radical," for a music event/discussion. Kaufman utilized previously unseen materials–letters, song lyrics, personal reflections–from the Woody Guthrie Archives to present a heretofore unknown portrait of an artist whose influence continues today through Bob Dylan, Jeff Tweedy, and many others. 2012 is the 100th anniversary of Woody's birth.
For the New Dominion event Kaufman will perform a live musical documentary that will include performances of Guthrie songs and a discussion of his politics.
MOJO Magazine calls the book, "A fascinating look at Woody Guthrie's politics."
