Join us for a sing-along celebration with Tim Gorelangton and special guest David ("Woody") Fenimore (and as many of the Almanack Singers as happen to show up -- including you!) Come on by, this will be a hoot!
David Fenimore is Director of Undergraduate Studies in English at the University of Nevada, Reno, where since 1989 he has taught undergraduate courses in literature, writing, and the humanities. He has served as University Distinguished Professorship of the Humanities, and received the College of Liberal Arts Dean’s Award for Outstanding Teaching and the University Undergraduate Advisement Award. Besides Woody Guthrie, his Chautauqua characters include western writer Zane Grey, New York Tribune publisher Horace Greeley, California settler John A. Sutter, and Donner Party survivor Lewis Keseberg. He has published a memoir, Bicycling Across America (Pinedrop Press, 1989), a play about Zane Grey titled A Bad Boy Grown Up, and numerous reviews and articles on western literature. He lives with his wife Amy Horne in Truckee, California, where in his spare time he plays piano “about as well as Woody played the guitar.” He and Tim play together frequently to benefit worthy local causes like the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and Meals on Wheels. As Woody put it, “If you think our music might be too left-handed for your lodge or club meeting, just send us $15 and we won’t come.”
