Woody Guthrie was born a hundred years ago this July. He died in 1967 at the age of 55, but he left behind a legacy as one of this nation’s greatest songwriters and troubadours. That legacy is being celebrated this year around the country.
Guthrie’s daughter Nora visited us in our newsroom earlier this week to tell us about her father and the celebrations. To learn more about Woody Guthrie and to find more information, you can visit the Woody Guthrie centennial site.
