Woody Guthrie that is.
Woody died back in 1967. Had he been around today he would have been 100 years old.
He was nicknamed the “Dust Bowl Troubador” and wrote “This Land Is Your Land”, the iconic American folk song. This was just one of the 3000 plus songs and stories that he wrote over a period of about 15 years. Despite his prolific out pourings his commercial career was not to be a long one. He spent most of his latter years in hospital and died of Huntingtons Disease.
Another relatively well known song, written by Guthrie and covered by Lonnie Donegan is “Grand Coulee Dam”.
