Woody Guthrie's folk anthems are iconic American music. His youth in the Midwest during the Dust Bowl and engagement with labor unions and political causes are reflected in songs like "This Land Is Your Land." Always political, his music has influenced everyone from Pete Seeger to contemporary musicians like Ani DiFranco and Bruce Springsteen. We learn about a new musical, now at Theater J, that explores Guthrie's life and music.
Cast members from "Woody Sez" perform Woody Guthrie's iconic "This Land Is Your Land" in the studio.
