In October 2012, a diverse group of musicians gathered to honor him with a special concert, Woody Guthrie at 100! Live at the Kennedy Center, which paid tribute to his unique artistry.
Now, the show — featuring contributions from Jackson Browne, Rosanne Cash, Judy Collins, Jeff Daniels, Ani DiFranco, Donovan, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, John Mellencamp, Tom Morello, Old Crow Medicine Show, Lucinda Williams, and many more — is available this week as a commemorative CD/DVD package for fans to add to their collections.
Here's a taste of the love, care, and musicality that went into the tribute, exclusively available here on Yahoo! Music for you to check out before getting your own copy of the project.
Out of all the contributors to the fete, a standout speaker is singer-songwriter Joel Rafael, who's been interpreting and honoring the "Dust Bowl Troubadour's" work for years. Here, he discusses the legendary folkster's influence.
Also, enjoy this touching performance from Roseanne Cash — who told the Washington Post that Guthrie is "part of the American consciousness" — of "I Ain't Got No Home."
