Woody Guthrie: The Tribute Concerts

Nora Guthrie talks about the new Bear Family box set...

Release date: September 22, 2017


Over 3 hours of live concert material! 20 new songs!

CARNEGIE HALL, 1968
Judy Collins, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens, Arlo Guthrie, Tom Paxton, Pete Seeger and Odetta, along with actors Will Geer and Robert Ryan who served as narrators.

HOLLYWOOD BOWL, 1970
Pete Seeger, Richie Havens, Arlo Guthrie, Odetta, Joan Baez, Country Joe McDonald, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott and Earl Robinson along with Peter Fonda and Will Geer as narrators.


In 1972, Columbia Records and Warner Brother Records each released a separate live tribute to Woody Guthrie album (one at Carnegie Hall and the other at the Hollywood Bowl)— a rare cooperative effort between rival labels that speaks to the high reverence in which Woody Guthrie was held.  Those albums, however, edited and intermingled tracks from two events and failed to capture comprehensively the full impact of those nights.

Now, exactly 50 years after Guthrie’s death, Bear Family Records will present what took place on those two iconic evenings in the original, scripted order.
