Singer/songwriter/guitarist Jonatha Brooke has been issuing albums that merge folk and pop since the early ‘90s. She returns to Eugene in support of The Works (August 26, 2008), her newly-released collection of original settings of unpublished Woody Guthrie lyrics. According to Nora Guthrie of the Woody Guthrie Archive, this is a very significant project: “For the first time ever a woman has composed, arranged, produced and performed a complete album of Woody Guthrie songs. The gods must be shaking their heads, ‘bout time!…“Jonatha’s antennae honed in on my father’s love songs, which are still relatively unknown. Some are sweetly childlike, other’s more spiritual. Some are downright pissed off or downright sexual! But they all swirl around Woody’s broad concept of love, as a complete theme in and of itself. Jonatha’s immense creativity as a composer and arranger, and her utterly gorgeous talent as a singer, has added a new dimension to this phrase. I thank her for giving me a new tone of “All” — a woman’s. And while her music plays in my ears, I run away with her.”.
