A month following Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday, I am catching up on a gallery of rare photos featured on NPR’s website.

University of Illinois Press author Rich Remsberg (Hard Luck Blues: Roots Music Photographs from the Great Depression and Riders for God: The Story of a Christian Motorcycle Gang) highlighted the collection in a July 14 “Picture Show” column.

After the dust of the Dust Bowl settled down, American folksinger Woody Guthrie moved to New York City and played more for the leftist East Coast intelligentsia than for migrant workers. Among these performances, one of the better documented was an informal concert in a remarkable carriage house in Lenox, Mass.
