The new “Woody Guthrie Center” in Tulsa, Oklahoma opened this spring. It’s roots, as WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, were in a family archive run by Woody’s daughter, Nora, who welcomed us in for a journey through Guthrie history. Here is the next Fishko Files.
Coming up this Saturday, June 29th at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts: The Del McCoury Band's new project "Del and Woody," showcasing never-before-heard words from Woody Guthrie, set to music by the Del McCoury Band.
