The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires presents Knosh & Knowledge
Holy Ground: Woody Guthrie's Yiddish Connection

Presenter Nora Guthrie discusses the artistic implications of her father Woody's relationship with his Jewish mother-in-law, Yiddish poet, Aliza Greenblatt. She'll include a presentation of photographs, music excerpts, writings and artwork that illuminate their personal and creative relationship.

One of Nora's particular focuses involves creating projects which bring Woody Guthrie's vast cultural and creative legacy to the public. Nora is president of Woody Guthrie Publications, Inc and, from 1994-2012, the director of the Woody Guthrie archives. In 1996, she co-produced the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Tribute to Woody Guthrie with performers Arlo Guthrie, Bruce Springsteen, the Indigo Girls, among others which was a catalyst for opening the Woody Guthrie Archives to the public for research.

Program only is free. $11 includes lunch following program. Advanced reservations are required by Thursday, May 30 before noon by calling 413-442-4360, ext. 10 or [email protected]
