"In May of 1941, Woody Guthrie was hired by the Bonneville Power Administration to write folk songs for a film about the Columbia River. He spent that month traversing Washington State and writing an astonishing 26 songs in just 30 days. On the 75th anniversary of this historic month of song, a whole host of musicians — including Northwest-based artists Sera Cahoone, Bill Frisell and Shelby Earl — will explore Woody Guthrie’s music and influence, including the aforementioned 26 songs. Other special guests for this event include John Doe, Ian Moore, Tim Easton, Gerald Collier, Dave Alvin and former Seattle mayor Mike McGinn."
