Woody Guthrie 1912-1967

Biography

Born Woodrow Wilson Guthrie, July 14, 1912, in Okemah, OK. Died October 3, 1967, in Queens, NY.
In Brooklyn State Hospital.

Woody Guthrie is unquestionably the most important folk singer of the 20th century. Guthrie's greatest gift was
perhaps his ability to invest everything from protest songs and populist anthems to outlaw ballads with unfailing
humor, compassion and insight. Indeed, his paeans to migrant workers, hobos and dustbowl refugees convey
America's restless, expansive heart no less than the writings of Walt Whitman or Mark Twain. Guthrie's influence
on Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and countless others is immeasurable; his children's albums are second-to-none.

Biography: Carter Family

Formed 1927, in VA.

The history of modern country music began in 1927 with the Carter Family. New York record executive Ralph Peer discovered the band when it performed at a portable recording studio he had set up in rural Bristol, Tennessee. To
the sparse accompaniment of Sara's autoharp and Maybelle's guitar, the group poured out songs of sadness, hard
work and an unwavering commitment to Biblical tenets. Peer was particularly impressed with the Carters' rhythmically sophisticated vocal delivery, punctuated by subtle harmonies, as well as Maybelle's uncanny ability to pick the melody of a tune on the bass strings of her guitar while simultaneously strumming the rhythm on the treble strings. Between 1927-41, the group recorded more than 270 songs, including chestnuts such as "Keep on the Sunny Side," "Wildwood
Flower," "My Clinch Mountain Home," "Wabash Cannonball" and "I Never Will Marry." The Carter Family
tradition is being carried on today by Maybelle's daughters Helen, Anita, June and June's daughter, Carlene. That foursome released a wonderful album in 1988 titled Wildwood Flower, which features Carter Family material such as "Worried Man Blues," "Dixie Darlin'" and "Church in the Wildwood."

There once was an oyster
Whose story I tell,
Who found that some sand
had got into his shell.
Did he curse at the government,
Cry for election,
And claim that the sea should
have given him protection?
And the small grain of sand
that had bothered him so
was a beautiful pearl
all richly aglow.
It was only a grain,
But, it gave him great pain.
For oysters have feelings
Although they're so plain.
No - he said to himself
as he lay on a shell
Since I cannot remove it,
I shall try to improve it.
Now the tale has a moral,
for isn't it grand
what an oyster can do
with a morsel of sand?
Now, did he berate
the harsh workings of fate.
That had brought him to
such a deplorable state?
Now the years have rolled around,
As the years always do,
And he came to his ultimate
destiny - Stew !
What couldn't we do
If we'de only begin
with some of the things
that get under our skin.
