Woody Guthrie and Old Man Trump with Will Kaufman
Will Kaufman is widely regarded as the world's leading authority on folk legend Woody Guthrie.
"Woody Guthrie & old Man Trump" is Will's newest show.
It tells the story of Guthrie's battles against his racist Brooklyn landlord, Fred C. Trump, father of the US president. Based on unpublished songs, letters, and notebooks that Will discovered in the Woody Guthrie Archives, the show brings to life all the anger and contempt that Guthrie felt for those in power who will deny justice to their fellow human beings on account of the colour of their skin.
This will be an great show - a lecture illustrated with visuals and Will's fantastic arrangements of Woody's songs.
Admission £8 (£6 unwaged)
