Join us for this musical and visual tribute to Guthrie by local musicians with a screening of the documentary film by oral historian & radio/video producer Michael O’Rourke, with a Q&A with the filmmaker. We're proud to present Michael O'Rourke's documentary depicting the remarkable story of songwriter Woody Guthrie's time in Portland working for the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) in 1941, and the discovery 40 years later of a collection of Guthrie's BPA recordings about the Columbia River. "Roll on Columbia: Woody Guthrie and the Columbia River Songs" This very special event of music, film and good stories celebrates the 70th Anniversary of Woody Guthrie's residency in Portland, when he crafted 26 compositions, collectively known as the Columbia River songs, including such classics as "Pastures of Plenty" and "Roll on Columbia." Guthrie came to Portland in 1941 as an employee of the Bonneville Power Administration, hired to write songs promoting the Administration's work of building dams that produced cheap electricity for the masses. -Portland Premiere screening of Michael O'Rourke's documentary film, Roll on Columbia: Woody Guthrie and the Columbia River Songs -Q&A with the filmmaker and the man who rediscovered Guthrie's lost recordings in the 1980s. -Musical tribute to Guthrie, featuring: The Wanderers Renegade Minstrels Little Sue Lewi Longmire Mike Midlo Jim Brunberg
