When Bob Met Woody

When Bob Met Woody

Who hasn’t dreamed of meeting their hero? “America’s Troubadour”, Bob Dylan was a self taught musician, mastering both piano and guitar. His parents had different aspirations for their son, but Bob loved blues and folk music and writing and performing. Hearing that his hero Woody Guthrie was seriously ill in a New York hospital, he hitched a ride to New York to visit Woody where he performed for him. That visit proved to be pivotal in Bob’s musical career. “Woody made each work count. He painted with words.” As a folksinger Bob Dylan’s folk music painted pictures for civil rights and world peace every bit as influential as his hero’s.   40 pages
