Nancy Brennan Strange, Steve Horton, Evan Carawan and other Knoxville musicians celebrate the life and legacy of Guy Carawan, who died last year and who would have turned 89 on July 27. A folk musician and musicologist, Guy and his wife Candie worked to organize leaders during the Civil Rights Movement. As a music director and song leader for the Highlander Folk School in Monteagle (now Highlander Research and Education Center in New Market), Guy introduced the song “We Shall Overcome” as an integral part of the movement.
