(Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly, Chicago ca. 1941; via Pastures of Plenty: A Self Portrait, ed. Dave Marsh & Harold Leventhal)

The two of them were just like to peas in a pot. Where one went the other one went too… Lead Belly was crazy about Woody´s playing - guitar playing and singing. I think their life, what they had experienced and in their music, is what really brought them so close together.

Leadbelly’s niece, Tiny Robinson, on her uncle’s friendship with Woody Guthrie.
