Serena Guthrie, great-granddaughter of Woody Guthrie, has been performing with her family since she was a child including The Guthrie Family Rides Again Tour & The Guthrie Family Reunion. This will be her third year performing at WoodyFest. Serena has a wide range of musical influences ranging from folk and country artists to jazz and soul.
A shy girl who rarely spoke to anyone (including family), she surprised everyone when she stepped on stage in 2014 and sang Delta Rae’s “If I Loved You.” Impressed by her performance, her grandfather Arlo had her perform the song at Carnegie Hall the following weekend. Working towards her degree at Ithaca College, Serena creates her own films which have been well-received.
