"Anyone spreading the word about the music, writing, art and humanity of Woody Guthrie sure is a true friend of mine! Keep up the great work, Professor Will!" — Ralph McTell
"Will does it all so well! You can taste the dust and hear the freight train whistle blow." — Steve Tilston
"Had me and everyone else in the audience hooked … a crowd pleaser that is quite unique." – Folk North West
Will Kaufman's WOODY GUTHRIE: HARD TIMES AND HARD TRAVELLIN' is a captivating "live documentary" that sets the songs of Woody Guthrie in the context of the American 1930s – the Dust Bowl, the Depression, the New Deal and the state of popular music itself. Will brings such hard-hitting Guthrie songs as "Vigilante Man", "Pretty Boy Floyd" and "I Ain't Got No Home" into conversation with other relevant songs of the era. These renditions, buttressed by informed historical commentary, exemplify the blending of music and radical politics that marks Guthrie's most powerful and evocative work.
