THIS LAND SINGS: SONGS OF WANDERING, LOVE AND PROTEST
INSPIRED BY THE LIFE AND TIMES OF WOODY GUTHRIE
4/22/16 7PM

Commissioned by Tulsa Camerata, the piece celebrates the life and music of Oklahoma native Woody Guthrie, who rose from humble beginnings to become one of the most influential American songwriters of the twentieth century. Blending a simple folk lyricism with a passionate sense of justice, Guthrie’s songs gave voice to the downtrodden, from the Great Depression to the present day. 
 
"Woody Guthrie is someone who has become so much bigger than life, so I knew I needed a larger form to do this idea justice."
-MICHAEL DAUGHERTY

This new 70 minute work receives its world premiere performance at the Philbrook Museum of Art, 2727 S Rockford Rd, this Friday, April 22, at 7:00 pm.
