ONE presents Elvis Costello and Mumford & Sons"The Ghost of Tom Joad" and "Do Re Mi" Medley

Inspired by John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath” and “The Ballad of Tom Joad” by Woody Guthrie, the songs speak to Bruce Springsteen’s identification with 1930s-style social activism and desire to give a voice to the disenfranchised.
