Kaylee’s Grammy has been nominated for a Grammy!

The Live Wire, Woody Guthrie in Performance 1949
Best Historical Recording

The album is call The Live Wire and it is a recording of my grandfather (Woody Guthrie) and grandmother (Marjorie Guthrie) in a 1949 concert. The performance was recorded at a YMCA in New Jersey on a wire-recorder and is the only recorded performance of Woody in known existence. The wires were donated to The Woody Guthrie Archives in 2002 and we’ve spent the past couple of years restoring the audio. There’s one machine in the US that does this special transfer and restoration and we got our hands on it!

*An interesting side note – my grandmother was 8 months pregnant with my mother at the time of the concert. 🙂
