Larry Long will present a one workshop entitled ‘Bringing Woody Home’ on Saturday, July 13th, 11am
at the Okemah History Center located on 407 W. Broadway in Okemah, Oklahoma as part of WoodyFest, July 10 – 14. Free of charge and open to the public
Long assembled the first hometown tribute to Woody Guthrie in Okemah, Oklahoma in 1989. His work in schools and communities sparked the creation of a non-profit organization, Community Celebration of Place, which creates intergenerational and multicultural opportunities for students to learn and grow through his program called Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song. Long is a recipient of the prestigious In The Spirit of Crazy Horse award.
Larry’s WoodyFest multi-media presentation will guide us in story, narrative, and song.
