'Woody Guthrie All-Star Tribute Concert 1970' Comes to DVD

This All-Star Tribute Concert 1970 celebrates the life and work of the legendary folk singer and songwriter Woody Guthrie, whose songs have become part of the bedrock of American life. Three years after Guthrie died of Huntington's disease in 1967, the California chapter of the Committee to Combat Huntington's Disease, now known as the Hereditary Disease Foundation, helped stage this concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles to raise funds for Huntington's research.

Although the concert took place one night only, 4-time Emmy award winner Jim Brown filmed this historic event, with performances by such renowned artists as Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Country Joe McDonald, Odetta, Richie Havens, Ramblin' Jack Elliot,Earl Robinson, and The Band along with narration by actors Will Geer and Peter Fonda.

Extras include 3 not previously recorded songs performed by Joan Baez, Odetta and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, as well as concert rehearsal footage and audio interviews with Arlo Guthrie and Ramblin' Jack Elliott.
