She oversees the Woody Guthrie Foundation located in New York City.In 1995, Guthrie approached Billy Bragg, an English folk/pop singer of similar sociopolitical philosophy, to create music for some of the many poems that her father wrote but never developed into songs. Bragg enlisted the band Wilco to help with the project. The resulting albums were titled Mermaid Avenue (released 1998) and Mermaid Avenue Vol.
