Woody Guthrie – Old Man Trump with Will Kaufman


Woody Guthrie – Old Man Trump
with Will Kaufman
Friday 18th January 7.30pm
£12/£10/£5 U26s

Friday 18th January

In December 1950, Woody Guthrie moved his family into a new apartment in Brooklyn’s Beach Haven. His new landlord it turned out, was none other than Fred Trump, father of the US president. Over 60 years later, Donald Trump would proclaim on the campaign trail: “My legacy is my father’s legacy” - Woody had his own, very strong opinions on what would be Fred Trump’s legacy.

In 2014 Will Kaufmann discovered, buried in the archives, Guthrie’s previously unpublished song lyrics and other writings on his perception of Fred Trump - he’s now turned these discoveries into a music and spoken-word presentation.

Kaufman – singer, multi-instrumentalist, and Professor of American Studies, is recognised as the world’s leading authority on Woody Guthrie. He is the author of Woody Guthrie, American Radical (2011), Woody Guthrie’s Modern World Blues (2017) and Mapping Woody Guthrie (forthcoming 2019).

In WOODY GUTHRIE AND “OLD MAN TRUMP” we hear Woody Guthrie speaking and singing from beyond the grave, bringing to life all the heartfelt anger and contempt that he felt.

“No one can understand the American people without listening to Woody Guthrie. Will Kaufman's doing important work here”. TOM PAXTON
