On 13th July, the day before the centenary of Woody Guthrie's birth, I was lucky enough to be able to interview Will Kaufman. Will is a major exponent of Woody's work, and a noted authority on the life and music of the great man.
It's great to have been able to make these videos about the man who, directly or indirectly, influenced nearly all of the songwriters I have interviewed to date. Wonderful also, to spend a couple of hours with Will - for a long overdue chat and brew - as he lives just over the moor in Hebden Bridge.
