'This Land Is Your Land'

Sam McCormally of the Ugly Purple Sweater band performed "This Land is Your Land" at Murrow Park while Janelle Triebitz held a microphone. The performance quickly turned into a sing-along. Written by Woodie Guthrie in 1940, the song became an American folk and protest favorite during the 1960s due to its political message.

Listen to McCormally's performance below.
