Time: 11:00am. Age restrictions: All Ages. Venue phone: (405) 702-5218. Larry Long will be presenting a workshop at the Okfuskee County Historical Society and Museum entitled ‘Bringing Woody Guthrie Home through Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song” Address: 407 W Broadway St, Under the Green Awning, Next Door to the Crystal Theater, Okemah, OK 74859-2401 Description: “I felt the warmth of my family all around me. Clara, Roy, Woody, George, Papa and Mama. They, too, all sat in this very theater many years ago. When the children came marching down the aisle and onto the stage, I swelled with pride and the tears came. I knew Woody was watching.” – Mary Jo Guthrie Edgmon On December 1, 1988 Okemah, Oklahoma held it’s first hometown tribute for Woody Guthrie. This event played before a full house at the Crystal Theatre featuring youth from Langston, Davenport and Okemah, who recited words and songs by Woody Guthrie and sang songs collectively written with Larry Long inspired by the elders of their communities. With the success of this song-writing process in Okemah, Larry developed a curriculum called Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song where one thousand elders have been brought into classrooms across the United States to share their life stories. Through this wonderful process, communities have been restored and bridges have been built between generations and diverse people. These oral histories and songs are as varied as our citizens: everything from a childhood in a Japanese internment camp, to fleeing war in Somalia, to farm winters in harsh northern Minnesota, to fighting in the Battle of the Bulge in World War II, to becoming an Anishinabe Ojibwe language instructor, to being the first grandchild of slaves to attend college. “When senior members of a community go into schools and talk about their lives and work, and children write songs with Larry Long about what they have learned, they create a remarkable celebration of humanity and hard work.” —DR. TONY SEEGER, Smithsonian Folkways In this workshop Larry will guide us in story, narrative, and song through this remarkable work in a multi-media presentation entitled: Bringing Woody Guthrie Home – Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song Presenter: Larry Long Smithsonian Folkways Recording Artist Executive Director of Community Celebration of Place www.communitycelebration.org www.larrylong.org
