Woody Guthrie Center to Celebrate 1 Year Anniversary

APR 30 РTulsaWorld.com has a cool article up about the Okemah, Oklahoma museum featuring the top American musical-activist, the granddaddy of them all, Woody Guthrie. The Woody Guthrie Center, which opened up one year ago, will be celebrating all week with exhibits and musical performances from such acts as Parker Millsap and John Fullbright celebrating the life of the troubadour that led the fight for organized labor and sang about the plight of the common man. He even started the folk scene and helped guide young Bob Dylan musically. Nowadays, his music and legacy is guarded and the creation of the Woody Guthrie Center is all due to the hard work of his daughter, Nora Guthrie. The director, Deana McCloud, wanted to make the center appeal to everyone, so even a third-grader can discover this great man, or one of his fans can reminisce and even discover new things about Woody.

      Woody Guthrie’s music career was circa 1930-1945, but he did influence 1960’s music by counseling and guiding Bob Dylan.
