Keith Landry's Favorite tracks on alonetone

Woody Guthrie's America

Uploaded .

Cave Street posted a track recently, their contribution to the Woody Guthrie Project, organised by Akron Family.

I wanted to take a shot at this too, so here’s my demo. It was really just half an idea and then singing it so i remembered it tomorrow, but i like how it turned out.

updated to a slightly less impromptu version

It’s another kitchen table production!

Aww, man. My cousin's youngest just turned one; his name is Arlo. I never axed my cousin if they named him after Arlo Guthrie, but I guess in the back of my mind I always assumed they probably considered that when they named him. "This Machine Kills... Fascists." written in Sharpie marker on Woody Guthrie's acoustic guitar.

Big fat fave. Love this, Stu - your voice sounds awesome (and I love those low down dirty notes especially!).
