Local Musicians Sing Woody Guthrieâs Dust Bowl Ballads and Originals
Tuesday, November 27, Athens, GA
40 Watt and Flicker – Two Stages!
FREE ($5 suggested donation)
Doors open at 7pm
In 1940, Woody Guthrie recorded Dust Bowl Ballads, an album about the struggles of common people during the great dust bowl. The album echoes themes of environmental degradation, economic hardship, and social activism. Today, northeast Georgia finds itself in the midst of a drought with serious environmental and social implications. On November 27, we will be holding a special one-night event to raise money for and awareness of water conservation issues, featuring local artists performing Dust Bowl Ballads and original songs.
Come hear local music and help conserve our dwindling water resources!
