Nellie McKay is amongst the artists that contributed to a Woody Guthrie tribute album called ‘Note of Hope: A Celebration Of Woody Guthrie’, released last week on 429 Records. “I love ‘Old Folks’ because it’s beautiful and noble, in a way only the very old and nature can be. It’s about the essence of life – so many otherwise perceptive people fall into the facile trap of youth worship. Woody’s song is an honest breeze blowing through,” McKay said about the song created with the help of Woody’s words and writings. Nelly admitted as she wrote the song, “I kept wanting to ask his advice.” Listen to and order the album at 429records.com.
