WoodSongs 900 with Roger McGuinn & John Lomax III
ROGER McGUINN gained fame for his work with the Limelighters, the Chad Mitchell Trio and ultimately as the founding member of The Bryds. Because of massive global hits like "Turn, Turn Turn" and "Mr. Tambourine Man," he was soon inducted into the Rock ’N’ Roll Hall of Fame. In the mid-1990’s
Roger pioneered one of the first streaming websites called FolkDen. To this day it is one of the most extensive archives of America’s folk legacy. We are honored and excited Roger will help us celebrate WoodSongs 900th broadcast! JOHN LOMAX III is a legacy descendant of the folk archivist pioneers, the Lomax Family. They are responsible for seeking out and cataloging America’s folk and mountain music, later absorbed by the Smithsonian Institute. John and Alan Lomax are responsible for discovering and promotion Woody
Guthrie, Leadbelly, Pete Seeger and many other icons of America’s musical history. John will be a special guest on this broadcast.
