On Saturday, September
20 Sheryl Crow, Cat Power, The Black Keys, Henry Rollins, Mike Ness, Son Volt,
and Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion celebrated the iconic legacies of John
Steinbeck and Woody Guthrie at the tribute concert dubbed  “This Land Is Your Land” at the
Concord Pavilion in the San Francisco Bay Area.

 

 

Representing their
respective families, Sarah Lee Guthrie (granddaughter of Woody Guthrie, natch)
and her husband Johnny Irion (grandnephew of John Steinbeck, in case you hadn’t
heard that tidbit before) performed a featured set and mc’ed the event, which
concluded with a jam session including Sheryl Crow and members of each of the
bands singing Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land.”
