“ROLL ON COLUMBIA” – A Woody Guthrie Film & Music Tribute

In 1941 Woody Guthrie packed up his wife and kids to take a job with the U.S. department of the Interior. They needed a folksinger to promote the benefits of building dams in order to produce cheap electricity on the Columbia River. Out of the project came 26 songs, including Guthrie’s popular folk classics “Roll on Columbia” & “Grand Coulee Dam.”Learn the full, compelling story in the documentary Roll on Columbia, followed by a live performance by guitarist Larry Tremblay & other local artists! Refreshments provided!  Co-sponsored by Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union& the Lowell Film Collaborative.
