Born in 1912, the “Dust Bowl Balladeer” was America’s most prolific folk songwriter of the 20th century. Woody wrote over 3000 songs that document the history, culture and concerns of 1930′s, 40′s and 50′s America. His songs are highly educational, extremely fun and very sing-alongable.
As part of a 2013 “Folk Artist in Resideny” at Rutgers University, Spook performed a variety of folk songs including songs of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger at the college student center. Although the students were general unaware of their songs, and in fact, were not even familiar with their names, they stopped, took notice and even sang along. One student commented that “there’s something authentic about this music that you don’t hear in today’s songs.”
An excellent program for Festivals, Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.
