Music Video: “This Town Is Your Town”

By Jonathon Reynolds - 25 June 2008 24

Music Video: “This Town Is Your Town” from Jonathon Reynolds on Vimeo.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the studio recording session of “This Town Is Your Town”, a new rendition of a classic Woody Guthrie tune with new lyrics specially written by Ian MacDougall for the launch of the Community Alliance Party. This is the resultant music video put together with footage taken on the day.

Lyrics: Ian MacDougall
Music: Woody Guthrie
Audio Producer: Scott Salmon

Please contact me if you are looking for a small studio and the services of an audio engineer – I’d be happy to put you in touch with Scott.

My pedant warning light is flashing: Guthrie didn’t actually write the music, he wrote lyrics to go with a Baptist hymn:
