Woody Guthrie’s musical parter, Cisco Houston, was a bit more polished than Woody in his solo efforts. Regardless, they made a good team until both, sadly, succumbed to illness early depriving us of their tremendous potential. Here is Cisco Houston’s terrific rendition of a classic folk song by Joe Hill. Thank you to Smithsonian Folkways Recordings for keeping this music alive!
