Musicians will celebrate the music of Woody Guthrie.

For an all-around good time that will bring smiles to your face and your soul, come to the“Woody at 100” concert Monday night at 7:00 in Wallenberg Hall. Area musicians Paul Cioe, Chris Dunn, Ellis Kell, Mark Ridolfi, and Randy Smith will celebrate the life and music of Woody Guthrie, composer of “This Land is Your Land” and hundreds of other songs in the American songbook. Guthrie, a self-described “Dust Bowl Refugee,” was born one-hundred years ago in Oklahoma, and his songs still tell of the hardships and triumphs of displaced
families, migrant workers, and everyday Americans living in the 1930s and 1940s. This is a lively group of musicians, all from the Quad Cities; you will love their enthusiasm, energy, talent, and knowledge. You’ll find out why so many later musicians, from Bob Dylan to Bruce Springsteen, were inspired by Woody. You’ll be inspired, too!
