    Come see Country Joe McDonald perform at Johnny D's! In his highly entertaining Tribute to Woody Guthrie, Country Joe McDonald deftly conveys all the charm, talent, and social and political consciousness of the legendary folksinger from Oklahoma. This Tribute incorporates all the good stuff, and the hard stuff, including Woody’s sad decline from the disease he inherited from his mother, union struggles during the Great Depression, migrant life on the trail from the Dust Bowl to California, where you’re in trouble if you don’t have the “Do Re Me,” a great Woody tune McDonald sings in the show. Country Joe brings to life Woody Guthrie, his father Mac McDonald, and Joe’s own connections to Woody and the politics and music of our country’s deep and soulful tradition of class division and struggle.
