Singer/Storyteller Barry Cloyd spins stories and songs in the vein of the American folk singer Woody Guthrie. Guthrie traveled with displaced farmers during the Great Depression and learned their traditional folk and blues songs, earning him the nickname the "Dustbowl Troubadour." Barry Cloyd now reminisces on Guthrie's journey.
