The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture presents the one-man show: I Ain’t Dead Yet, performed and written by Tim Machin from the life and writing of Woody Guthrie. “I Ain’t Dead Yet” is a one man show based on the life and times of Woody Guthrie the famous American folk singer and social activist. 

Over the course of this one hour show, the audience joins Woody Guthrie as he reflects on his life, intertwining memories, stories and songs.

Using a unique blend of story telling, spoken word and live musical performance, “I Ain’t Dead Yet”  paints an intimate picture of a man whose life was riddled with personal tragedy, yet who brought hope to so many.

“Written with the intent of finding out more about the man behind such famous songs as ‘This Land is My Land’, I discovered along the way that there are many parallels between the world that we live in today and the world that Guthrie lived in then.  A lot of what Guthrie saw, wrote and sang about is still relevant today because a lot of the same things are still going on like yer basic greed and yer basic poverty and how the best way to fix it is to get together to find a better way for everybody,” comments the writer and performer, Tim Machin.

I Ain’t Dead Yet will be at the Rossland Miners Hall on Friday, November 18. Doors are at 7pm and the show begins at 8pm. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Tickets can be purchased in advance at The Cellar in Rossland for $12 or at the door for $15.
