We are thrilled to let you know that PBS stations around the country are airing the Woody Guthrie All Star Tribute Concert. This concert at the Hollywood Bowl was the very first fundraiser for what is now Hereditary Disease Foundation. You’ll see never before seen footage of this rare and historic event from 1970. 

As an added bonus, HDF will receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each DVD of this historic concert. Purchase here.

Woody Guthrie, America’s greatest folk singer, died of Huntington’s disease several years before this tribute concert was filmed. Over the past 50 years, we have made many significant discoveries about HD, and we are now celebrating the first gene therapy which promises to slow or even reverse HD in its tracks!

Woody Guthrie continues to inspire us. His music and memory live on forever. Don’t miss this amazing concert. Check your local listings for airtimes in your area!!!
