Woody Guthrie Concert a Big Success
Posted on October 1, 2012 in General News
September 29 and 30
This summer marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the legendary folk singer,Woody Guthrie. There was a celebration of his life and times at Shuswap Theatre on September 29th & 30th. The show consisted of stories about Woody, lots of photographs and local musicians performing twenty of the over two thousand songs he wrote. The pay-what-you can concert brought in about $2,000 which will be used to support the people that Woody sang and played for, “the down-on-their-luck folks” who get help through local food banks. There will be a CD and a DVD made of the concert and sometime in the future you will be able to hear it on “The Voice of the Shuswap” radio. If you’re interested in a CC or DVD ($10 each) contact Jake Jacobson at 250 832-2300.
