What Pete Taught Woody

May 24, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

$15

An intimate portrait of the friendship and working relationship between Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie.

2019 marks the centennial of Pete Seeger’s birth! To honor Seeger’s 100th birthday, Nora Guthrie (Woody Guthrie’s daughter) has created this special multimedia presentation featuring rare and intimate interviews with Seeger, as he recalls his working relationship with Guthrie. The program will also highlight archival materials, photographs, and music – providing insight into their significant friendship, which ultimately played a huge role in the Folk Music Revival of the 50’s and 60’s.

This program is a fundraiser for the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, the non-profit organization founded by Pete & Toshi Seeger. Tickets just $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
