Woody Guthrie festival in full swing
OKEMAH, Okla. – The Woody Guthrie festival is in full swing in Okemah.
The festival kicked off last Wednesday with a tribute sing-along concert honoring the late Pete Seeger.
The festival will continue through Sunday with musical performances, open mike event, and poetry readings.
The free festival honors Woody Guthrie’s July 14th birthday.
He would have been 102 this year.
The singer died in 1967 from Huntington’s disease and this festival raises money to fight the illness.
