Both are musical disciples of American folk hero Woody Guthrie and each shared thoughts on how Guthrie might react to today's troubled society.

They also discussed the Piedmont blues and shared examples of this important blues, finger-picking style, which they're exploring together as part of a master/apprentice program sponsored by the Ohio Arts Council.
