Pete Seeger Presents Woodie Guthrie

Pete Seeger Presents Woodie Guthrie

Redding Library Click Here for Directions

This 90-minute program and folksong fest centers around the legendary friendship between Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. It will be presented by Tim Holt portraying Pete Seeger.

Pete talks about his friendship with Woody and what it meant to him, what he learned from Woody’s simple approach to songwriting and his “plain simple orneriness that had a wonderful kind of honesty to it.” Weaved into his narrative, Pete performs some of Woody’s memorable songs, including “This Land,” “Hard Travelin’,” “I Ain’t Got No Home,” and “So Long It’s Been Good To Know Ya.”

Pete also talks about his own background growing up in a musical family, his involvement in movements for workers’ rights and civil rights, and his efforts to clean up the Hudson River near his home. He’ll sing songs that were part of that personal history, including “If I Had A Hammer,” “We Shall Overcome,” and “Sailin’ Up My Dirty Stream.”

And since it’s Pete Seeger, the audience will be encouraged to join in on the singing.
