Darryl heads to Seattle this week to give a presentation on Woody Guthrie at the University of Washington. The panel, “Hard-Hitting Songs by Hard-Hit People: The Music of Woody Guthrie and John Handcox, 1936-1941”, takes place at the annual meeting of the Labor and Working Class History Association. Darryl will be joined by his friend and fellow musician, Michael Honey, a professor of History. Darryl’s talk will focus on how Guthrie’s attitudes toward race evolved during his time in Los Angeles. He plans to perform several songs including “Big City Ways”, “Hooversville”, “Oklahoma Hills” and “Los Angeles New Year’s Flood.”
