Thread Name: Woody Guthrie Traveling Exhibit Story
Subject: RE: Woody Guthrie Traveling Exhibit Story
Briefly, this is an AMAZING exhibit. Saw it in NYC. Spent a few hours. Left with an understanding of how huge a figure he was. How he not only composed activist material but his way of living was evidence of his personal commitment. A sample of Woody's writing bears this thought: MUSIC IS JUST A HANDY WAY OF TELLING WHATS ON YOUR MIND---NO MIND--NO MUSIC.

Don't you love it?
