Woody Sed is a “powerful piece delivered by a powerhouse talent” (Uptown Magazine) about the life and times of Woody Guthrie, and the songs he sang about them. Woody said: “All you can write is what you see.”
Well, Woody Guthrie saw it and wrote about it–from the dust bowl of Oklahoma to the orange groves of California, to the towers of New York City; from Hobo Jungles to Union rallies and the Merchant Marine. Both a biography of a seminal American musician and an epic drama of Greek proportions, Woody Sed charts Guthrie’s rise to fame and his struggle to escape a harsh fate that dogged his footsteps to the end.
Featuring Woody’s songs, the story offers a cascade of colorful characters, all bundled up in a true to life tale. Woody was a provocative writer; his words ring as true today as they did in his own troubled times. Woody wrote and sang his truth and his songs still inspire us to join in and carry on.
>>Woody Sed is pure magnificence.<< 5 stars – Tom Eremondi, Saskatoon Star Phoenix
