A noted historian singing Woody Guthrie numbers for his lecture? It can only be the University of Leicester's New History Lab.

On Thursday 9 December at 4.30pm the New History Lab will play host to singer and University of Central Lancashire historian Professor Will Kaufman, fresh from this summer’s Glastonbury Festival, at 1 Salisbury Road. His combination of US social history of the 1930s set to the contemporary folk songs of Woody Guthrie has been widely praised.

The New History Lab are known for their unorthodox approach to the study of history, but that has not hurt attendance at their seminars – quite the opposite.

In fact, tickets are nearly sold out, but for those quick enough off the mark to get hold of one it will be an unforgettable afternoon of US social history through its songs. Tickets are available by email from Lucy Byrne, lb77@le.ac.uk, but hurry.
