Woody Guthrie 100th anniversary special

Folk and roots show. It’s the centennial anniversary of Woody Guthrie this weekend and The Durbervilles Folk & Roots Show is set to celebrate it in the company of one of the leading authorities on the man and his music: Will Kaufman, who just happens to reside in Hebden Bridge. Will, who is a Professor of American Literature and Culture, has had privileged access to the Guthrie archives and writes books and performs musically illustrated documentaries about Woody. Hear him talk wisely on the subject and sing some Woody related songs.
