Tarrytown Tribute To Woody To Benefit Clearwater

Celebrate Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday on Sun April 22 at 7p at the Tarrytown Music Hall with Clearwater’s second annual Earth Day Benefit Concert. Artists performing selected Woody Guthrie songs include Janis Ian, Tom Paxton, The Klezmatics, Tom Chapin, Toshi Reagon, David Amram, Lucy Kaplansky, Garland Jeffreys and Cheryl Wheeler.

The concert will benefit Clearwater, founded by folk music legend Pete Seeger. Proceeds will benefit Clearwater’s Environmental Education and Camp programs.

Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie were close friends and musical collaborators who first met in New York at a benefit supporting California farm workers. Pete and Woody, along with Leadbelly, Burl Ives, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, Josh White and others founded The Alamanc Singers in 1940, one of the first major folk music groups to organize and popularize protest music. Members of this group, including Pete, went on to found The Weavers, popularizing many of Woody’s songs. During the McCarthy Era of the 1940’s and early 1950’s, Pete, Woody, and many other artists were blacklisted.  Ultimately, Pete and Woody have inspired generations of musicians including Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Peter Paul & Mary, Judy Collins, Bruce Springsteen, Ben Harper, Billy Bragg, Jeff Tweedy, and many more.

Tickets range in price from $48 – $125 at  at Tarrytown Music Hall and can be purchased at   or 877-840-0457.

Tarrytown Music Hall, located in Westchester County, is just 35 minutes north of New York City at 13 Main Street, Tarrytown, NY. The Music Hall is a short walk up the street from the Metro North train station.
