'I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world and that if it has hit you pretty hard and knocked you for a dozen loops, no matter what colour, what size you are, how you are built, I am out to sing the songs that make you take pride in yourself and in your work. And the songs that I sing are made up for the most part by all sorts of folks just about like you.'
July 2009

Happy birthday, Woodrow Wilson 'Woody' Guthrie, born today in 1912. 'This land was made for you and me.'
