Third Annual Guthrie's Ghost Fundraiser: In 2012, Hope Machine (Fred Gillen Jr. & Steve Kirkman) teamed up with folksingers David and Jacob Bernz along with the wonderful vocalist Amy Fradon to celebrate Woody's centennial year and to raise money to restore the Woody Guthrie, an environmental and historical boat originally conceived by Pete Seeger, currently operated by the Beacon Sloop Club (beaconsloopclub.org). Hope Machine, an official program of the Woody Guthrie Archives, presents cutting-edge versions of Woody's classics along with powerful new material. David Bernz is a two-time Grammy-winning producer for Pete Seeger and an accomplished folksinger in his own right (incl. Work O' The Weavers). Jacob Bernz is a young songwriter-balladeer who won top honors in the 2013 Towne Crier open mic finals. Amy Fradon's leather-lunged vocals have been acclaimed throughout the region, with over 14 albums to her credit. Amy  is also the lead female vocalist in The Vanaver Caravan's "Pastures of Plenty" program honoring Woody Guthrie. Guthrie's Ghost presents a program that is rousing, relevant, uplifting and participatory. This year, Guthrie's Ghost will celebrate not only Woody Guthrie but also Pete Seeger and Lee Hays who would have been 100 last March.

If you like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, The Weavers
