Preview: All You Jim Crow Fascists - The Life Of Woody Guthrie

Urban 75 have an extra special offline coming up this week including a performance of Woody Guthrie's freedom songs by Will Kaufman.

Guthrie songs are the legacy of his own transformation from a casual Oklahoma racist to a committed civil rights activist working and singing with the likes of Lead Belly, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee and Paul Robeson. Kaufman takes us on a music tour of Guthrie's work, which is as relevant and hard-hitting now as it was for America in the Depression, mixing live performance with sparkling humour.

What's even better is that - as with all of U75's offlines - admission to this and the subsequent mix of live music, DJs, film screenings and cabaret is all free.

That's Thursday 8th October at the Dogstar, Brixton between 8pm-2am (catch Will Kaufman at 8.30pm). Check out the U75 community.
