Celebrate Woody Guthrie in Poetry and Song

RIDGEWOOD – Calling all poets, musicians, foodies, fans, and anyone else who’s interested -- or curious -- to celebrate the 100th birthday of Woody Guthrie on Saturday, September 8 at 1 p.m. at Ridgewood Christian Reformed Church (271 Lincoln Avenue at West End Avenue).

The festival will celebrate the life, music, and legacy of Woody Guthrie--the legendary folk singer/writer--upon the centennial of his birth.  Contact ERGO for more information or to be included in the roster of participating poets, musicians, or chefs.

All poets are invited to attend and read their works that reflect the many themes of social, political, and spiritual justice in Woody’s “people songs.” Musical performers are welcome to share Woody’s music or their own folk music. Any chefs willing to share the foods of America are welcome to participate. This event follows similar events by New Jersey poets, musicians, and chefs who gave successful tributes to Fats Domino and Elvis Presley at the same church.
