Jeff Tweedy will lead a diverse lineup of artists paying tribute to the Woody Guthrie classic “This Land is Your Land” on the 80th anniversary of its writing in New York City at a concert at Town Hall on Feb. 23. “This Land is Your Land” — written about three days after Guthrie arrived in New York City after traveling across America — describes what he saw during his travels, from the bounty of resources in the “golden valley” to the line at the Relief Office, where Woody “saw my people.” The evening will feature performances by Tweedy, John Fullbright, Gangstagrass and other special guests gathering friends from along that ribbon of highway to join together in the same neighborhood where Woody wrote these important words in 1940.
