Woodrow Wilson Guthrie (July 14, 1912 – October 3, 1967)

singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie was one of the most significant figures
in American folk music; his songs, including social justice songs, such
as "
This Land Is Your Land", have inspired several generations both
politically and musically. He wrote hundreds of political,
folk, and
children’s songs, along with
ballads and improvised works.

Guthrie died of complications of Huntington’s disease on October 3,
1967. By the time of his death, his work had been discovered by a
new audience, introduced to them through Dylan,
Pete Seeger,
Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, his ex-wife Marjorie and other new members
of the folk revival, and his son
Arlo (below).
