The latest project from Del McCoury features unheard and unsung words of Woody Guthrie set to music by Del himself. To help bring new life to the work of American fok poet Woody Guthrie, his daughter, Nora Guthrie, gave Del McCoury exclusive access to the archives of her father's unpublished work. Now with the support of Woody Guthrie's family, the Del McCoury Band performs an evening of never-before-heard lyrics written by the "Dust Bowl Troubadour" set to new music by Del McCoury and including a multi-media presentation featuring Guthrie's original words, drawings and other materials from the archives that inspired this performance. In addition, McCoury includes his trademark Bluegrass standards and favorites.
"My father's earliest musical influences were the string bands of North Texas in the late '30s and '40s. If he were making music today, it would sound like the Del McCoury Band." - Nora Guthrie
