Kurt Andersen and Nora Guthrie, Executive Director of the Woody Guthrie Archives, talk about nurturing an artist’s legacy. 

Guthrie is the daughter of folk music legend Woody Guthrie. She's also the curator of the current Smithsonian traveling exhibition, This Land is Your Land, which looks at Woody's life, legacy, and his lasting influence on American music and culture, and is the driving force behind Mermaid Avenue and Mermaid Avenue II, the acclaimed collaborative albums of her father's unrecorded lyrics by Billy Bragg and Wilco.
