BRCC Presents Hard Travelin' With Woody

hardThe Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) Theatre will present a performance of Randy Noojin's original one-person play, Hard Travelin' with Woody. This critically acclaimed, multi-media production, will feature stories and songs of America's iconic folksinger, saint-of-the-workingman and poet-of-the-people, Woodrow Wilson "Woody" Guthrie.

"Woody" is best known as an American singer-songwriter and folk musician, whose musical legacy includes hundreds of political, traditional and children's songs, ballads and improvised works. He frequently performed with the slogan This Machine Kills Fascists displayed on his guitar. His best-known song is "This Land Is Your Land". Songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Seeger, Joe Strummer and Tom Paxton have acknowledged their debt to Guthrie as an influence.

The Huffington Post: “Noojin  captures the spirit of Woody, getting even an uptight New York crowd singing along. This is solid, entertaining work that  should travel far and wide in these hard times, just like Guthrie himself.”
