The Huntington's Disease Society of America
honors Marjorie Guthrie with the
FOUNDER'S DAY OF GIVING
~ September 18, 2019
The Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA) is honoring Woody's wife Marjorie Guthrie with a special FOUNDER'S DAY OF GIVING fundraiser today only!
The funds will be used to bring families with HD who can't afford to participate to the HDSA Convention in February, 2020 in New Orleans. The 3-day convention brings scientists, researchers, caretakers, social workers, and families together for information, activities and support.
If any of you saw the recent news about the Navy Vet with HD who appeared at the Bernie Sanders event with a $130,000 bill, you'll see how devastating - physically, emotionally and financially - this disease can be. The team at HDSA immediately contacted the man and are helping him through this terrible situation.
If you feel so moved to add your 2 cents, we thank you!

~ BROOKLYN HONORS WOODY GUTHRIE WITH STREET SIGN ~
~ Special Record Day Release
WOODY GUTHRIE, JEFF TWEEDY, RYAN HARVEY, ANI DIFRANCO,
TOM MORELLO, JOHNNY IRION, US ELEVATOR
Although these songs were written more than half a century ago in 1952,
to be sure, they are songs for here and now.
The Guthrie family lived in the Trump apartment complex Beach Haven in Brooklyn, NY in the early 1950s. Disgusted by the discovery that the apartments were being systematically denied to black renters by the owner, Fred Trump, Woody Guthrie penned a number of angry lyrics. They were recently re-discovered by Guthrie scholar Will Kaufman at the Woody Guthrie Archives.
The first version of “I Don’t Like The Way This World’s A-Treatin’ Me” is from a 1952 home demo reel to reel tape recording. The second version includes added musical accompaniment provided by Jeff Tweedy.
The song “Old Man Trump” is a composite of two separate lyrics which were combined by Ryan Harvey— the title being derived from one of the lines in the lyrics. We feature two approaches to the song on this release, one with music by Ryan Harvey featuring Ani DiFranco and Tom Morello, and the other by U.S. Elevator, led by Guthrie’s grandson-in-law Johnny Irion featuring Mac McCaughan and Tim Bluhm.
