On June 7, MVD Entertainment Group will release on DVD the Woody Guthrie All-Star Tribute Concert 1970, a live event that celebrated the life and work of the legendary folk singer and songwriter. Three years after Guthrie died of Huntington’s disease in 1967, the California chapter of the Committee to Combat Huntington’s Disease, now known as the Hereditary Disease Foundation, helped stage this concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles to raise funds for Huntington’s research.

Although the concert took place one night only, four-time Emmy award winner Jim Brown filmed this historic event, with performances by such renowned artists as Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Country Joe McDonald, Odetta, Richie Havens, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Earl Robinson and the Band, along with narration by actors Will Geer and Peter Fonda.
