All the Way from America: A night of Woody Guthrie, Labor, Union and Anti-Corporate Songs – hosted by Eli Smith
On Friday August 3rd, Eli Smith, host and producer of the Brooklyn Folk Festival and the Washington Square Park Folk Festival presents a night of historical and contemporary labor, union and anti-corporate songs. In our climate of culture scarcity and political stagnation, one could forget that America has produced in its history a wealth of great protest songs. Come to the Culture Project on Friday August 3rd for a healthy dose of this great historic material as well as original songs from today! The show will feature several of the artists performing songs by Woody Guthrie, who would have been 100 years old this year.
Bob Malenky – Folk and Blues singer/guitarist
Jessy Carolina – Jazz and Folk singer and songwriter
Eli Smith and Peter K. Siegel – Old time union songs, with guitar and banjo, etc.
