Folk Thursday: Arlo Guthrie

Don’t act like you thought you were getting through Thanksgiving without this.

Folk Thursday: Arlo Guthrie sings Woody

This might be the saddest song ever written — and as we approach Labor Day next week, a stark reminder of why the labor movement was (and is) necessary. The first time I heard this was at a Woody Guthrie anniversary concert at the Brady Theater in Tulsa a few years ago. It made me mad then. It makes me mad now. If it doesn’t make you mad, I have serious questions about whether you could pass Philip K. Dick’s empathy test.

Who needs the TARDIS? Apparently 1968 is coming to Okemah this summer. Judy Collins, Arlo Guthrie, and — OMG! — Melanie, all in the same weekend.

Eep!

Commence hyperventilation in 3 … 2 … 1 …
