Thread Name: Woody Guthrie Traveling Exhibit Story
Subject: RE: Woody Guthrie Traveling Exhibit Story
Frank, I'd agree that Woody would not enjoy the personal/sentimental bent of current folk. But where would Woody hang out today? Very little is happening in the way of labor struggles, few picket lines, and those generally cut-and-dried. Nor are there any significant campaigns for basic social reforms. Today, Woody would seem sort of like a man without an era. To my notion.
