On Friday, April 20 at 7:30PM in the Mayo Civic Center Presentation Hall, a season finale called DEL AND WOODY fetauring newly discovered WOODY GUTHRIE lyrics set to newly composed music by award winning bluegrass legend DEL MCCOURY. Sponsored by: Davies Printing & KTTC

Tickets: $29 • $26.50 (Members) --Woody Guthrie is one of America’s greatest songwriters.Though Woody's career had concluded before bluegrass legend Del McCoury’s began, the two are teaming up in an unlikely way as Del is setting Woody’s handwritten lyrics to music. The Woody Guthrie archives features almost 3,000 song lyrics that were either never set to music, or the music was never preserved. Woody’s daughter, Nora Guthrie, asked Del to resurrect these tunes.

This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Crane Group.
