Folk performers like John Fullbright, Terri Hendrix and the son of Woody Guthrie, Arlo Guthrie, are set to play the 17th edition of the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, which continues today through Sunday in the tiny eastern Oklahoma town of Okemah.

Mitch Gilliam traces the pioneering influence of Woody Guthrie on today’s punk-folk vagabond musicians.

The following is a production of our partners at This Land Press.
