Celebrate People’s Music!  Pete Seeger said, "some music can help us escape our troubles; some music can help us understand our troubles, and some music can help us do something about our troubles." In a Short History of People's Music, we will share music that taps into escape, understanding, and transformation. We’ll talk about what Pete called "the folk process." Audience participation encouraged - singing, insights, dialogue!

Part 2:  This presentation will pick up with Woody Guthrie, and include commentary about and songs by Pete Seeger, Leadbelly, Malvina Reynolds, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Richie Havens, Bruce Springsteen, Joan Baez, Kris Kristofferson, and Tom Waits.

Doug Morris (Ph.D., Penn State) teaches in the world of critical pedagogy at West Chester University. He is a former jazz guitarist, a singer, a composer, and a performer of "people's songs." Dr. Morris has written about Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen, and others in the tradition of "people's music”.
