music monday :: new multitudes

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.

So wonderful.
