Woody Guthrie: And the Dust Bowl Ballads

£20.00

Forged in the Dust bowl of the 1930s, in an America crippled by the Great World Recession, Woodie Guthrie found solace in song, and soon those songs became the voice of the people – men and women who had seen their lives deracinated and destroyed by the vicissitudes of global economic forces beyond their control. With a delighted eye, and an ear for a tune, Nick Hayes’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed ‘Rime of the Modern Mariner’ brings a legend to life with a generous spirit and crackling moral force its subject would have been proud of.

Description

Forged in the Dustbowl of the 1930s, in an America crippled by the Great World Recession, this humble man found solace in song, and soon those songs became the voice of the People – men and women who had seen their lives deracinated and destroyed by the vicissitudes of global economic forces beyond their control.

Guthrie’s influence lives on, a touchstone for Bob Dylan, The Clash and the protest singers of the Occupy movement today. With a delighted eye, and an ear for a tune, Nick Hayes’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed Rime of the Modern Mariner brings a legend to life with a generous spirit and crackling moral force its subject would have been proud of.
