Celebrating Woody Guthrie’s Centennial
Under the invitation of Nora Guthrie, Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, Anders Parker, and Yim Yames were able to tour the Guthrie archives. Each of the four songwriters were offered the chance to mine the plethora of notebooks, scratch pads, napkins, etc., for anything that might inspire them to lend their voices and give Woody’s words new life. Presented here is a HuffPost exclusive video of the track “Careless Reckless Love,” one of the results of their labor of love.
According to Rolling Stone magazine, tribute concerts marking the centennial of Woody Guthrie’s birth are officially planned this year in all 50 states. That fact alone may confirm the iconic status of this leftist folk troubadour, who died in 1967. But it doesn’t make his legacy resonate quite like this month’s tiny bicoastal tour by Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, Anders Parker, and Yim Yames, which has traveled from California to the New York Island to close Friday at the Paradise Rock Club.
New Multitudes, a centennial tribute to Woody Guthrie, made up of the singer-songwriters Jay Farrar, Yim Yames, Anders Parker and Will Johnson, operates from within a cocoon of familiarity. Not with regard to the songs, exactly: all 12 on the group’s self-titled debut album, released last month on Rounder, began with previously unused scraps of writing from the Guthrie archives, freshly set to music.
