Starring David Lutken (Woody Sez). Produced by Mary Cossette Productions and Hartshorn – Hook Productions. Weaving together Guthrie’s words and songs, “Woody Sez” paints a portrait of this revered cult figure’s fascinating and often tragic life. Considered by some as the Godfather of American folk music, Guthrie was a protest singer fighting for and lifting up the spirits of people beaten down by the hardships of The Great Depression. This is a story of survival, unity and holding onto your beliefs in the face of adversity. With classic Guthrie tracks including, This Land is Your Land and Bound for Glory.
