Happy Birthday Woody Guthrie

Almost exactly 100 years ago today my musical hero, Woody Guthrie was born in Okemah, Oklahoma. Woody wrote hundreds of songs including This Land is Your Land. As a young folk music geek, I studied his recordings hoping that just a little of his pure, honest magic would rub off on me.

 

I'll be singing a few of Woody's songs at my shows this week to celebrate his centennial and I'll also be a small part of a great tribute concert on Saturday night. One way or another, I hope we'll get a chance to raise or voices together this week and make Woody proud!

I think the downfall of Rupert Murdoch's erpmie proves there is a better world coming, his trashy rag and intrusive- arrogant staff owned politicians and victimized the innocent. Yes let's get back to real journalism the way it used to be: just the plain facts mamn , nothing else. Indeed there is a clearing out and making room for a new world.SU
