In Woody Guthrie's Words

(PR) Forty years after his untimely passing, “original folk hero” Woody Guthrie will help write another significant chapter in American folk music when his previously unheard lyrics will be revealed to new melodies in an historic world premiere event celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Philadelphia Folksong Society.

“IN WOODY’S WORDS” will showcase these new “songs” performed by the artists who’ve brought them to life, when Chris Smither, John Gorka, Jonatha Brooke, Tom Paxton, Sara Lee Guthrie & Johnnie Irion and Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer present their new interpretations of Guthrie’s lyrics at a gala luncheon Sunday, December 16 at World Café Live, 3025 Walnut St., Philadelphia.

The Woody Guthrie Family and the Woody Guthrie Archives will be honored by the Philadelphia Folksong Society for enriching America with the songs and spirit of Woody Guthrie. The Folksong Society, best known for producing the Philadelphia Folk Festival each summer since 1962, is a not for profit educational organization dedicated to the encouragement, dissemination, and enjoyment of folk music and related expressions of folklore, and the sponsoring of research, education, therapeutic programs and related publications.
