At first glance, its hard to imagine two artists more different than Burns and Guthrie, separated by centuries, cultures and continents. Burns is a literary icon, Scotlands Bard. Guthrie is the Dust Bowl Troubadour, his songs crafted in hobo camps, picket lines, and migrant trails. But look at the men behind the myths, and the similarities are striking; from how they lived to how they wrote, their rambling hearts to their populist passions. Burns and Guthrie are more popular than everand the reasons reveal two very kindred spirits. With songs, conversation and revealing stories, author, journalist and musician Scott Alarik explores their lives and legacies.
For the past 25 years, Scott Alarik has been arguably the most prolific and influential folk music writer in the country. He covered folk for the Boston Globe, contributed regularly to public radio, including seven years as correspondent for the national news show Here and Now, and wrote for many national magazines, including Sing Out, Billboard, and Performing Songwriter. From 1991-97, he was editor and principal writer for the New England Folk Almanac. The author of several books, Alarik is a popular presenter about folk music around the country.
