Synopsis: In 1941, Woody Guthrie wrote 26 songs in 30 days--including classics like "Roll On Columbia" and "Pastures of Plenty"--when he was hired by the Bonneville Power Administration to promote the benefits of cheap hydroelectric power, irrigation, and the Grand Coulee Dam. Timed to celebrate the 75th anniversary of his employment by the federal government, KEXP DJ Greg Vandy takes readers inside the unusual partnership between one of America's great folk artists and the federal government, and shows how the first American folk revival of the 1930's was a response to hard times.
The new book 26 Songs In 30 Days plunges deeply into the historical context of the time and the progressive politics that embraced Social Democracy during an era in which the United States severely suffered from The Great Depression. And though this is a musical history of a vibrant American musical icon and a specific part of the country, it couldn't be a better reminder of how relevant such topics are in today's political discourse.

About the Author: Greg Vandy is host of The Roadhouse, a weekly radio show on KEXP Seattle and the publisher of American Standard Time, a blog dedicated to American music and vintage lifestyle. He also curates for the Pickathon music festival in Portland, Oregon, produces short films, and collects records. The combined effects has established Vandy as a tastemaker in the world of new indie roots and American music in general. This is his first book.
