Woody Guthrie and Old Man Trump

December 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

WOODY GUTHRIE AND OLD MAN TRUMP tells the story of Woody Guthrie’s battles against his racist Brooklyn landlord, Fred Trump, father of the US president. Based on unpublished songs, letters, and notebooks that Will Kaufman discovered in the Woody Guthrie Archives, the show brings to life all the anger and contempt that Guthrie felt for those in power who will deny justice to their fellow human beings on account of the colour of their skin. Scholar, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Will Kaufman is regarded as the world’s leading authority on Woody Guthrie. He returns to Bruton to bring us more Guthrie music and a little known battle of talent versus property. Tickets £20 including one course supper after the event from: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/woody-guthrie-and-old-man-trump-an-evening-with-will-kaufman-tickets-69705457901 Clubroom bar open from 6.30pm Event starts at 7pm Please let At The Chapel know if you are unable to use your ticket as there is often a waiting list.
