A HIT folk musical which has toured Berlin, Washington D.C and London's West End is making its way to Dunfermline next month.

Woody Sez: The Life and Music of Woody Guthrie is internationally-acclaimed smash show and will be visiting the Carnegie Hall on Wednesday, May 18.

The musical captures the heart and spirit of America’s original folk hero Woody Guthrie, who paved the way for music legends Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and many more.

The tumultuous, tragic, touching and joyful tale of 'America’s greatest folk poet' is told in his own words and features Bound for Glory, Pastures of Plenty, The Ballad of Tom Joad, This Land is Your Land, and two-dozen more of Woody Guthrie’s indelible protest songs. The showpiece is brought to vivid life by the award-winning original London cast, featuring David M. Lutken, Ruth Clarke-Irons, Eleanor Brunsdon and William Wolfe Hogan, along with director Dean Elliott.

The show is a celebration of one of the giants of American music, presenting a joyful, uplifting narrative about a difficult man’s difficult life during difficult times. Woody Sez is a tale of struggle, activism, patriotism and commitment and Guthrie’s songs have become ambassadors of the best of the American spirit.

Introduced at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2007, Woody Sez has played Glasgow, Belfast, Munich, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and the West End.

The performance, in the folk tradition, is unamplified and authentic, with the musical arrangements incorporating more than 20 acoustic instruments.

The show takes place at 7.30pm on Wednesday, May 18 at the Carnegie Hall. Tickets cost £18 (£16 concessions) and are available through the theatre box office on 01383 602 302.
