Woodyfest 2019: Wink Burcham

Wink Burcham In 2019 Tulsa-​​based singer/​​songwriter Wink Burcham made his sixth straight Woodyfest appear­ance, per­form­ing a late-​​afternoon set on the Bound for Glory stage. The thirty-​​eight-​​year-​​old Muskogee native looked older and con­sid­er­ably thin­ner than when I first met him sev­eral years ago. I’d been hear­ing rumors of Burcham going through hard times through the musi­cal grapevine for… Read More …

Woodyfest 2013: Tim Easton

Tim Easton Featuring Megan Palmer We’ve fea­tured folk-​​troubadour Tim Easton at the bureau pre­vi­ously. But we first met him in 2019 when he made his Woody Guthrie Folk Festival debut. He was joined on the Crystal Theatre stage by vet­eran folk-​​fiddler Megan Palmer. Easton has made four appear­ances at Woodyfest since then, most recently in… Read More …

Woodyfest 2019: Andy Adams

Back to Square One Although Andy Adams is no stranger to music, the Tahlequah native admits the title of his lat­est release, Back to Square One, could be taken lit­er­ally.

Woodyfest 2019: Community Outreach with Gypsy Twang and Friends

Woodyfest 2013: Band Camp & Backstage

Today we present can­did images from my first year as a vol­un­teer pho­tog­ra­pher for the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival. I was still learn­ing to use my newly-​​acquired Leica dig­i­tal rangefinder cam­era when I shot the 2012 fes­ti­val from the audi­ence. A year later I had shot numer­ous musi­cal per­for­mances and fes­ti­vals, so I was feel­ing much more con­fi­dent as I doc­u­mented the… Read More …

Woodyfest 2018: Randy Crouch, Johnny Irion, & John Fullbright

This writer had only one offi­cial assign­ment (cov­er­ing gritty soul-​singer Opal Agafia) at the big out­door stage on fes­ti­val Saturday. Red Dirt leg­end Randy Crouch pre­ceded her. Unfortunately, his set coin­cided with my only chance to eat din­ner before I had to be back
