One Night Only
Saturday March 2nd @ 8pm
Part memory play, part eulogy, part concert, this one woman show written by legendary folk singer and union organizer, Si Kahn, traces the life of Sarah Ogan Gunning, one of the unsung heroines of the American folk music history. The play finds her alone in her Detroit apartment on the evening of her Aunt Molly Jackson’s funeral as she attempts to set the record straight and say good bye to her sister. Although her name is almost unknown today, Sarah Ogan Gunning (played by Eastern Kentucky’s REEL WORLD STRING BAND founding member, Sue Massek) was an major influence on Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and other famous folk singers although her name is all but unknown.
