Last summer on our 3-month book tour through the Midwest in our RV, John and I attended the WoodyFest, July 12-16. We had so much fun listening to music, meeting so many talented musicians who are keeping the spirit of Woody alive through their music. This year was the festivals 20th anniversary. https://www.facebook.com/WoodyFest/
The Woody Guthrie Folk Festival is held annually in mid-July to commemorate the life and music of Woody Guthrie. The festival is held on the weekend closest to July 14 – the date of Guthrie’s birth – in Guthrie’s hometown of Okemah, Oklahoma. Daytime main stage performances are held indoors at the Brick Street Cafe and the Crystal Theatre. Evening main stage performances are held outdoors at the Pastures of Plenty.
At the festival, I met some incredible people from the HDSA Oklahoma Chapter; in particular Andrea Garrett, president. We worked together, shared a booth all four days.
