Join us for a Hootenanny for Hunger
FRIDAY, JULY 20th, 2012, 7:00 pm at SORENSEN’S RESORT in HOPE VALLEY, CALIFORNIA
A Hootenanny Birthday Benefit for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada
WOODY GUTHRIE, DUST BOWL TROUBADOUR
Accompanied by his good-time road buddies PETE SEEGER & CISCO HOUSTON
Crusaders against high rents, low wages, loan sharks, greedy bankers and lying politicians
Straight from the Oklahoma dust bowl, the Texas oil boom towns gone bust, the long lonesome Lincoln Highway, and the migrant worker camps of California
Braving dust storms, rain storms, hot deserts, cold mountains, farm foreclosures, railroad bulls and vigilante thugs to deliver their homemade songs, poems, jokes, stories, and no-nonsense wisdom
(NOTE: all songs are protected by US copyright law #1776-IWW and anyone singing them without our permission will be a darn good friend of ours)
· Admission $10/person donation, matched by Sorensen’s, with all proceeds benefiting the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, who are feeding more hungry folks than ever before.
· Bring a jacket, bring the kids, and sing along around the campfire.
· Songbooks will be provided, and hot chocolate & cookies will be served. Communist literature will not be available, but most of us are already in the red.
· Sorensen’s Resort offers picturesque lodging, good food and fine drink in an idyllic mountain meadow setting. Public as well as private campgrounds are located nearby.
