Extended Feature: "New" Songs of Woody Guthrie

Lots of great folk-rooted and folk-branched music on Saturday Morning this week. The extended feature, "New Songs of Woody Guthrie," celebrates the release of “Mermaid Avenue” by Billy Bragg & Wilco, 20 years ago today. It was the first album of “new” Woody Guthrie songs created by contemporary artists with lyrics found in the Woody Guthrie Archive – a project spearheaded by Nora Guthrie, Woody’s daughter.
