  1. Guthrie, Woody (
      Provides a short biography of the singer. 2-02

  2. Guthrie, Woody (
      "The words and music of Hank Williams echo across the decades with a timelessness that transcends genre. He brought country music into the modern era, and his influence spilled over into the folk and rock arenas as well." 9-03

  3. Guthrie, Woody (
      "Woody Guthrie is the original folk hero. It was Guthrie who, in the Thirties and Forties, transformed the folk ballad into a vehicle for social protest and observation. In so doing, he paved the way for Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and a host of other folk and rock songwriters who have been moved by conscience to share experiences and voice opinions in a forthright manner." 9-03

  4. Guthrie, Woody: A Celebration of Woody's Music (
      "A Guthrie retrospective has the potential to be a tear-jerker. This is a folk musician who had lived in poverty, who made his mark by telling the stories of the Depression. He immortalized displaced Okies who were run down by California—that promised land turned purgatory for migrants fleeing dusty Midwestern farms. Hardship, endless roads and oppression are regular characters in his ditties, which is part of what makes his historical legacy so powerful. But it’s not the type of thing you’d associate with a birthday party." 10-12
