Will Kaufman, author of the new book Woody Guthrie, American Radical, is starting his cross-country U.S. tour in two weeks in Los Angeles.  Most of Kaufman’s presentations will include performances of Woody Guthrie songs, a discussion of Guthrie’s politics, and a book signing.

Some real folk luminaries have offered high praise for Kaufman’s Guthrie performances:

“No one can understand the American people without listening to Woody Guthrie. Will Kaufman’s doing important work here.” —Tom Paxton

“I thank Will Kaufman for introducing a new generation of Europeans to ‘the other America.’ It’s a wonderful job he’s doing.” —Pete Seeger

“I am paraphrasing Woody Guthrie when I say, ‘Anyone spreading the word about the music, writing, art and humanity of Woody Guthrie sure is a true friend of mine!’ Keep up the great work, Professor Will!” —Ralph McTell

If Will Kaufman visits your hometown, please stop by his performance and say hello.
