Remembering Woody: An Evening with Billy Bragg and Friends

Tuesday October 17 2017 • 7:30pm - 10:00pm ET
In-person event


Join singer, songwriter and activist Billy Bragg and special guests for an evening commemorating the 50th anniversary of folk music icon Woody Guthrie’s death.

From Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl performance to the Women’s March to the recently discovered Trump-related writings he penned decades ago, Guthrie is as relevant now as ever. Bragg will share his thoughts on what makes Guthrie such an enduring and timeless influence and why he continues to inspire people with his message of social justice.

Hosted by The New Yorker‘s Amanda Petrusich, the evening includes performances by Bragg of songs by Guthrie, and those inspired by him.

A free one-year membership to the Woody Guthrie Center, located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is included with paid admission.
