Stories in song before and after Dust Bowl Ballads
Woody Guthrie produced the album Dust Bowl Ballads in 1940, with every song detailing the consequences for the country and the people of the 1930s ecological disaster in the USA.
Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen are among the many songwriters and musicians who have been inspired by Guthrie and the tradition he wrote in – an ancient and universal one, where an important function for music was to communicate stories and lived experiences from person to person and from generation to generation. These songs could travel between communities, countries and continents.
Pedro Carmona-Alvarez, John Erik Riley and Kaja Schjerven Mollerin take us with them into this tradition, both before and not least after Guthrie.
The event will be in Norwegian.
