MacDougal Street Rent Party will be doing Woody Rediscovered at NOMAD, a workshop presenting lesser known songs by Woody Guthrie. Some will be songs that Woody recorded and/or published in his own lifetime, but which are not well known today. Those may include:

Why Do You Stand There in the Rain?
Death Row
Boomtown Bill
Sally Don't You Grieve
Peace Call (Bugle Call for Peace)
One Little Thing the Atom Can't Do
Blow, Big Wind, Blow
Tin Horn Taxi
The Einstein Theme Song
I Don't Like the Way This World Is Treating Me

Others are lyrics that were discovered in the Woody Guthrie Archives long after his death and were set to music by other people. Those may include:

California Stars
Way Over Yonder in a Minor Key
Jaxonville Waltz

Woody Rediscovered
will take place in the Music Room from 8:00 to 8:55 PM on Saturday, November 5.

From 10:00 to 10:55 PM on that same night and in the same room, I will be presenting Songs of Road and Rail, featuring songs of hoboes, tramps, boomers, truckers, and other people whose employment, or lack thereof, takes them from place to place -- and I don't mean by using their frequent flyer miles! Anne Price and Joel Landy will likely contribute a few songs.
