    Walkin' the Long Road - by Danny Marroquin, PopMatters Music Feature
    Now it's not the gunslingers and money-hungry roughnecks that descend on the town. Instead there are folkies with Kerville shirts, academics, protesters, architects, professionals, children, teachers, Oklahomans who come to Guthrie's birthplace to catch a little piece of something authentic on July 14, the singer's birthday. Some of these people noticeably need something to do. Some want a weekend Oklahoma history lesson they didn't get in school. Others remember recent years past, when Billy Bragg, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Steve Earle, Jackson Browne and Pete Seeger walked the same streets. The Woody Guthrie Music Festival keeps showing growth, which is funny for a town that tried to forget about Guthrie.

    Bound For Glory - Tribute to Woody Guthrie with a recording by Guthrie, Bruce Springsteen, Bono, Emmylou Harris, Little Richard and John Mellencamp
