Wilco, Bragg Ready Second Collaboration
Although scheduling constraints prevented the acts from touring
in support of the first "Mermaid Avenue" album, a fall
tour is currently in the works.

http://www.sonicnet.com/news/story.jhtml?genreNameForDisplay=Jazz&genreDirectoryName=jazz&id=871397 Jazz Fest: Wilco A Stand-Out
Their encore began with a country-tinged set of two Guthrie tunes from Mermaid Avenue — "Hesitating Beauty" and "Christ for President," which turned into an audience-participation sing-along.
An unexpected gem was a new Guthrie/Wilco/Bragg tune from
the forthcoming Mermaid Avenue, Vol. II — so new, in fact, it was
only the second time the band had played it live (even the band's
engineer didn't know its name).

Billy Bragg & Wilco Top Anti-Hit List for week of May 2-9
1. "Remember The Mountain Bed"
This heartbreaking ballad -- Wilco
performed an impromptu version
of it when their equipment broke
down during their last Toronto
show -- is worth the entire price
for the sequel to 1998's Woody
Guthrie project, "Mermaid
Avenue". Three other tracks are
available now on Elektra's website

"Mermaid Avenue 2", Elektra, out
May 30)

Sat., June 10, 7:30 p.m.
The Smithsonian Associates is proud to present a musical tribute to one of America’s greatest
folk singers, featuring singer-songwriters Jimmy Doyle LaFave, Willis Alan Ramsey, Eliza
Gilkyson, and George Norman “Butch” Hancock. The program is offered in conjunction
with the National Museum of American History exhibition This Land is Your Land: The Life
and Legacy of Woody Guthrie (on view through Aug. 13).
(Stay tuned for the correct venue for the concert. It probably will be at the Carmichael Auditorium instead of the Baird since there is another concert already scheduled at the Baird for June 10.)

Various Artists 'Til We Out Number 'Em . . . The Songs of Woody Guthrie (Righteous Babe)

Ani DiFranco produced, released, spliced and diced this pastiche from a '96 performance at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum when performers such as herself and Bruce Springsteen gathered for a tribute concert devoted to political folk pioneer Woody Guthrie. Songs by Guthrie's son Arlo and protege Ramblin' Jack Elliot coexist with contributions from rock ringers like Springsteen (he does an apolitical children's song, "Riding in My Car" and the migrant worker anthem, "Deportee"), Billy Bragg, Indigo Girls and David Pirner. The result is not only a charming peek at how Guthrie's music has touched musicians of every generation, but a lesson in how the oral tradition will survive in the new century.

Listen to Billy Bragg Live!
To celebrate the traveling exhibition This Land Is Your Land: The Life and Legacy of Woody Guthrie, Billy Bragg performed a number of songs from Mermaid Avenue and Mermaid Avenue, Vol. II at the Gene Autry Museum. In addition to the wonderful songs, Bragg illuminates the legend of Woody with tales of the troubadour's life along with his own research and insight. You can hear a RealAudio stream of his entire performance or listen to the individual songs, at Amazon.com.

``'Til We Outnumber 'Em'' was assembled from digital audio tapes recorded by audio
engineer John Reynolds. Among the highlights are Springsteen's playful cover of
``Riding in My Car,'' DiFranco's bristling version of ``Do Re Mi'' and a gut-wrenching
rendition of ``1913 Massacre'' sung by former Guthrie sidekick Ramblin' Jack Elliott.

In a statement, DiFranco said her goal was to create ``a little overview of Woody's life,
a little introduction to his music.'' She declined to be interviewed for this story.

DiFranco was basking in the post-performance afterglow when she first suggested
putting together an album of highlights.

``Ani was so moved by what happened that night,'' Santelli recalled. ``After the show,
all of the artists hung out for a long time backstage. They felt there was so much good
energy that there should be something available for people to hear.... That's when Ani
approached us about the idea of doing a live record.
