The world’s leading expert on Woody Guthrie…as good an interpreter of Woody’s music as you’ll find. Woody Guthrie: Hard Times and Hard Travelin’ sets Guthrie’s songs in the context of the American 1930s – the Dust Bowl, the Depression, the New Deal and the state of popular music itself.
Such hard-hitting songs as “Vigilante Man”, “Pretty Boy Floyd” and “I Ain’t Got No Home” are brought into conversation with other relevant songs – from Joe Hill’s “The Preacher and the Slave” to “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?”. Altogether the show highlights the blending of music and radical politics that marks Guthrie’s most powerful work.

Sam and Tanya are the two constant members of The Changing Room, and the door is left open for the line-up of other musicians to change and evolve.
