Although Woody Guthrie hails from Okemah, OK, his travels took him right across the country: from California to the New York Island! My Name Is New York explores the lofts, apartments, and couches where Guthrie lived and wrote some of his most well-loved songs.

Nora Guthrie, Woody Guthrie’s daughter and President of Woody Guthrie Publications, Inc., will provide a glimpse into the many places Guthrie called home through a multi-media presentation that uses archival photographs, historic audio, and rare film footage to recreate his life in 1940s through 1960’s New York City.
