This is a wonderful collaboration between Jim James of My Morning Jacket (Yim Yames), Jay Farrar of Uncle Tupelo, Anders Parker, and Will Johnson of Centro-matic and Monsters of Folk. It’s all Woody Guthrie lyrics with new music beautifully crafted by these modern folk legends. I saw them play at Newport Folk Festival and it was such a wonderful experience.
Woody Guthrie is THE folk legend and this year would be his 100th birthday. There were a lot of Woody inspired sets this year and also Woody-inspired collaborations.
