Rambling Around Woody Guthrie’s New York: A virtual tour with his daughter Nora Guthrie

Although legendary folksinger Woody Guthrie hailed from Okemah, Oklahoma, his travels took him across the country, “from California to the New York Island.” Join us for an intimate virtual tour of the various NYC locations where Guthrie lived and where he wrote some of his best-loved songs; from streets and stoops to apartments, coffee houses, and park benches.

Woody’s daughter, Nora Guthrie, will provide a glimpse into the many places Guthrie called home, as she shares archival photographs, historic audio, and rare film footage in a multi-media presentation that recreates Guthrie’s life in New York from the 1940s to the 1960s.
