This Fest is Your Fest... (Jul 15, 2010)
Although Woody Guthrie died in 1967, heís never really left us ó especially here in Oklahoma. The rambling Dust Bowl troubadour and Oklahoma native has helped define the hard-driving character of our state, and the musicianís impression can be felt here every day. More than 8,000 visitors are expected to flood into Okemah this week for the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival. Woody Guthrie's son Arlo took the stage Wednesday night, and this weekend features performances from folk-inspired acts like Jimmy LaFave, Stoney LaRue, and the Red Dirt Rangers. The Oklahoma Gazette's Joe Wertz previews the five-day celebration of folk music's greatest hero.
