Abstract: Woody Guthrie, as folk musician, embraced the stereotypical low-life image associated with musicians in American culture by merging it with that of the socially conscious artist. He embraced identification of himself as lower class (working-class clothing, the Oklahoma vernacular, the life of the hobo) as a way to protest against the economic disparity that punishes society's least privileged members. Claiming his place as a musician at the margins of society, Guthrie became a representative and a spokesperson for people occupying a similar position. In so doing, he elevated musicians to a new level, and effectively created the Masterplot of folk musician as social activist. He showed his solidarity with the people and created a role that became a new archetype during the 1960s � folk musician as hero of the people and a force for social change. I illustrate Guthrie's influence upon and establishment ofthe musician-associal activist Masterplot through analyzing Guthrie's 'Oklahoma Hills,' Bob Childers's 'Woody's Road,' Bob Dylan's 'Song to Woody' and Steve Earle's 'Christmas in Washington.' I will show how the Masterplot survives apart from Guthrie's persona, though his personal influence is still recognized and revered.
