Description: 2012 marks the centennial of the birth of Woody Guthrie, singer, songwriter, poet, novelist, painter, rambler, and activist. From the years of the Great Depression through to the postwar 1950s Guthrie gave voice to this country's disenfranchised. In 2009 singer/songwriter Jonatha Brooke was given lyrics by Guthrie's daughter that she then turned into songs for an album. Now in Guthrie's centennial year, Brooke celebrates the songs of Woody Guthrie once again, along with new songs of her own. Singer/songwriter Dar Williams will be among Brooke's special guests.
