In 1912, an Oklahoma legend was born. Woody Guthrie’s influence is still flowing strong through the musical hands of Oklahoma’s finest artists. The Woody Guthrie Center, 102 E. Brady St., in Tulsa will definitely agree with that. This educational center not only gives a deeper insight into the life of the Okemah native, but it also hosts concert series sharing how Guthrie’s style is present in music today. On Saturday, July 27, the center presents an afternoon with singer Fiawna Forte for a new weekly series, which focuses on the art of songwriting and music development. Forte will perform some of her latest music and discuss with moderator Richard Higgs how she combines her rock roots with her modern sound. Forte is set to take the stage at 4 p.m. Admission is $6-$8. To learn more about Forte and the Woody Guthrie Center, visit www.woodyguthriecenter.org.
