Folklives #17: Last Thoughts
Monday, Jan 21, 2008
In 2005 a group of musicians played a Bob Dylan tribute show at the Northwest Folklife Festival. Among the memorable performances that day, Jeremy Wagner recited Dylan's own epic tribute to Woody Guthrie, the man who inspired him to make folk music in the first place.
A masterful example of Dylan's early poetic attempts, "Last Thoughts on Woody Guthrie" combines stream of consciousness rambling with the rhythmic groove of a preacher.
Music in this podcast is performed by Mike Grigoni and Dan Mahr.
