Woody Guthrie's 100th birthday is a time to appreciate not only his magnificent songs, but also the legacy they begat. The people who've joined me on this recording, and many others like them, continue to create vibrant music that speaks to our times. "Woody's Children" celebrates that ongoing legacy. My goal is to pass the song along, person by person, person to person. On the recording you'll hear Pete Seeger describe how This Land Is Your Land became known to an entire nation without ever having been a "hit" record. I hope "Woody's Children" makes its way around -- through school choruses, campfires, concerts, rallies and people just singing in their living rooms. Now more than ever, we can make our own kind of music and share it.
