About

Originally from Okemah, Oklahoma, singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie was responsible for songs that have become the folk standards of the nation, known and performed in many languages throughout the world. The Kennedy Center in collaboration with the Grammy Museum and Woody Guthrie Publications presents This Land Is Your Land ~ A Woody Guthrie Centennial Celebration Concert, which celebrates the life and work of the folk singer with performances by Jackson Browne, Rosanne Cash, Judy Collins, Ry Cooder, Del McCoury Band with Tim O'Brien, Ani DiFranco, Donovan, Ramblin' Jack Elliott,  Jimmy LaFave, John Mellencamp, Tom Morello, Old Crow Medicine Show, Joel Rafael, Rob Wasserman, and Lucinda Williams. Songs such as "Pretty Boy Floyd," "Pastures of Plenty," "Hard Travelin'," "Deportee," "Roll on Columbia," "Vigilante Man," and "This Land Is Your Land," are among the hundreds of Guthrie pieces that have become staples in the canon of American music. Through his unique music, words, and style, Guthrie was able to bring attention and understanding to the critical issues of his day.
