John McCutcheon Celebrates Woody Guthrie
Saturday, October 15, 2011
This Land: Woody Guthrie’s America is the latest release by John McCutcheon. In celebration of the upcoming 100th anniversary of Woody Guthrie’s birth (July 14, 2012), this CD is hailed as one of the most comprehensive and stunning tributes to this American icon. Not only is there an all-star version of "This Land Is Your" (featuring Willie Nelson, among others), but beautiful versions of Guthrie songs, classic and unknown. Joined by a cadre of the finest Americana musicians (Kathy Mattea, Tim O'Brien, Stuart Duncan, Tommy Emmanuel), John demonstrates not only his superb musicianship, but his understanding of the legacy he is not only celebrating but continuing.
