Manhattan Concert Series to Celebrate Woody Guthrie’s 100th
A diverse roster of musicians will come together to celebrate the 100th birthday of Woody Guthrie during a series of free outdoor concerts throughout Manhattan, NY, dubbed “Pastures of Plenty: A Celebration of Song.” Part of Arts Brookfield’s Summer on the Plaza series, the concerts take place May 2 through August 8 with a number of free afternoon and evening concerts by a wide-range of performers that have been influenced by Guthrie’s music. Concerts will take place at Brookfield Office Properties locations including the the recently renovated Grace Building Plaza, One New York Plaza, One Liberty Plaza, the World Financial Center Plaza and more.
Performers include the blues-driven Angelo M. Trio (One New York Plaza, June 28), rising indie-folk star Sarah Donner (Grace Building Plaza, July 15), and troubador Clarence Bucaro (Grace Building Plaza, July 18).
