Again, I scratch my head while I try to figure out how these nominations are made, but I am extremely happy for both the Klezmatics and the Woody Guthrie foundation for this great recognition. This is another example of the power of Woody's music - and the timelessness that it shows - and for the new songs that are being created from his words! Woody has been gone for 30 years, but he is still coming up with great songs!!
