With its roots going back more than 20 years, the Woody Guthrie New York Hoot is a two-hour round robin songfest featuring some of the more than 3,000 songs that Woody Guthrie sang. Born in Okemah, Oklahoma, in 1912, Woody made New York City his home off and on from 1940 until his death from Huntington’s disease in 1967 at the age of 55. Performers include Hillel Arnold, Pat Lamanna, Joel Landy, Marie Mularczyk O’Connell, and Steve Suffet. Each is an established artist in his or her own right, and all are longtime Woody Guthrie admirers. Audience members are welcome to sing along on choruses and refrains. This event is co-sponsored by the New York Irish Center.
