WoodyFest on the Mount: Cincinnati's Annual Musical Celebration of Woody Guthrie: April 11, 2020
WoodyFest, Cincinnati's annual musical tribute to the life of American folk singer Woody Guthrie, blows into town each April (just as close to the 14th day of April as possible.) Long-time Cincinnati folk musicians Jake Speed & the Freddies join forces with Cincinnati's foremost folksters to play two hours of songs of Woody Guthrie while they tell the story of this iconic Dust Bowl balladeer whose songs gave voice to hard-hit, depression-era working folks. The intimate setting of the Recital Hall at Mount Saint Joseph University echoes with tunes like "So Long, It's Been Good to Know Ya," "This Land is Your Land," and even Bob Dylan's Woody-inspired "Song to Woody." Tickets are $10 at the door, and light snacks are provided by event sponsor, The Queen City Balladeers. James Billiter's hand-pressed copies of the WoodyFest on the Mount poster are featured and for sale at the show.
