Gathering together with a feisty line-up of musicians, Sheryl Crow will headline this fundraiser for The Woody Guthrie Foundation & Archives and the John Steinbeck Center. Thanks to the support of the producers at Live Nation, $2.50 from every ticket sold will be donated to each organization.
Rock, roll, laugh and love the day away with Sheryl Crow, The Black Keys, Cat Power, Son Volt, Mike Ness, Henry Rollins, and Woody's granddaughter, Sarah Lee Guthrie & John Steinbeck's great-nephew, Johnny Irion while supporting these two important organizations who truly represent the American spirit!
A huge thanks goes to all the musicians who are coming together on this day to remind us, in times like these, what we think the American spirit can sound like today!
