Woody Guthrie and the Dust Bowl Ballad
Sun 25 Nov / Quarterhouse
Guthrie’s influence lives on, a touchstone for Bob Dylan, The Clash and the protest singers of the Occupy movement today. In this talk interspersed with tunes, Nick Hayes brings a legend to life and shows how music refuses to obey the arbitrary borders set out by states, and how culture steals and appropriates as part of its organic growth.
