21st Century Music by the Seat of the Pants

A few years ago at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, I came across a group of American folk singers who were performing "Woody Sez," a biography of Woody Guthrie. They were back this year again - which I found it as they bounced up to me at the Underbelly Press Launch [...]

Sidestepping to my new Twitter home
