Woody Guthrie's Northwest Folk Songs
$15 - Joe Seamons
Saturday, June 4th 3:30-4:30pm
In this workshop, discover the connections  between Woody Guthrie’s Northwest compositions, such as “Pastures of Plenty” and “Grand Coulee Dam,”  with local logging, fishing and sawmill ballads composed by working people of the Pacific Northwest. Through singing and discussing these tunes together–and sharing the stories about how and where they were composed–we will reflect upon the ways and which folk songs are tied to specific places. This class is open to musicians and non-musicians alike!
