Internationally acclaimed West End hit, Woody Sez: The Life and Music of Woody Guthrie, is coming to the Carnegie Hall this Wednesday, 18 May, featuring the award-winning original London cast.
The tragic, touching and joyful tale of America’s greatest folk poet is told in his own words and includes Guthrie classics such as Bound for Glory, Pastures of Plenty, The Ballad of Tom Joad, This Land is Your Land. The performance is, in the folk tradition, unamplified and the musical arrangements incorporate over twenty acoustic instruments.
Woody Sez has played Glasgow, Belfast, Munich, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Washington and the West End as well as New Zealand and China. Lyn Gardner wrote in The Guardian: ‘This low-key, high-spirited celebration of Guthrie’s life and music knocks big West End biopics into a heap of dust.’
