A songbook amassed to commemorate the 100th birthday of American singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie.
Woody Guthrie was an underappreciated folk singer who became an posthumous icon, and the Every 100 Years - The Woody Guthrie Centennial Songbook has been released to mark his extraordinary achievements in songwriting. Woody Guthrie wrote over 3,000 songs in his lifetime, yet only 300 or so were ever recorded. At the invitation of Guthrie's daughter, Nora Guthrie, contemporary singer/songwriters have set music to Guthrie's previously unpublished lyrics.
Musicians such as Billy Bragg, Wilco, Dropkick Murphys, Jonatha Brooke, Jay Farrar, Tom Morello, Lou Reed, The Klezmatics, Hans-Eckardt Wenzel, Madeleine Peyroux, Janis Ian, Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, and Woody's son, Arlo Guthrie, have shown us how timeless Woody's words are. The book also includes a preface from Howie Richmond, founder of The Richmond Organization – Guthrie's publisher.
Every 100 Years is a compilation of 100 Woody Guthrie songs that run the gamut from work songs, love songs and union & protest songs, to topical songs and children's songs. The book features his classics such as "This Land Is Your Land," "Roll On Columbia" and many, many more.
Order today and add some more timeless classic songs of the American generation to your repertoire.
