Feature: Woody Guthrie Exhibit

An exhibit at the Smithsonian's museum of American History celebrates the songs, art work and story of a musical legend: Woody Guthrie. The wandering folk singer, who died in 1967, was a poet, painter, novelist, fortune teller, political activist, and radio host. But he's best known for singing and writing more than a thousand folk tunes. To celebrate July 4th, Lex Gillespie prepared this profile of an American original, Woody Guthrie.

David Arkush's Woody Guthrie Site


David Arkush's site

was the first serious "fan" site;
it is hard to find these days, and (unfortunately) David states:

Note: The Woody Guthrie Pages will soon disappear. Any day now.

David's pages inspired me (back in 1997 or so...) to create the first incarnation of my own Woody Guthrie site -- and I always tried not to duplicate but rather complement what was available on his site.. Therefore, I consider his statement about the previous incarnation of my site not a criticism but a confirmation of my intentions:

Very detailed and well-documented, though only on a narrow range of topics.
