  • Woody Guthrie

    Born Woodrow Wilson Guthrie in Okemah, Oklahoma on July 14, 1912, Woody Guthrie would become one of the most influential folk musicians of all time. After hitchhiking to California and hopping freight trains with other Dust Bowl migrant farmers during the Great Depression, he enjoyed major-label success in the 1940s and inspired a new generation of folk musicians in the ’60s, most significantly Bob Dylan. A man who shared a name with a president and who played a guitar labeled “This Machine Kills Fascists,” Guthrie was not shy about his left-wing politics; even his most well-known song “This Land Is Your Land,” which has become a traditional children’s tune, has a political message. To this day, Guthrie’s songs remain embedded in the American consciousness. If you haven’t heard them yet on vinyl, you are in for a real treat.
