"All of the artists on the festival bill embrace the creative legacy of Woody Guthrie in the music they create today," says Swallow Hill spokesman Chip Herter. "Be it a wry observation of American culture or a timeless Americana melody, the performing artists pay homage to Guthrie in their music and lyrics."
The Woody Guthrie Festival begins today at 5 p.m. at Swallow Hill, 71 East Yale Avenue, and continues tomorrow night at the L2 Arts & Culture Center, 1477 Columbine Street. Admission to the all-ages fest is $30 for each night's concert (or $25 for members); Saturday's Guthrie exhibit/workshop is $10.
