Ain’t Gonna Be Treated This Way (Woodie Guthrie)

What I witnessed that day was nothing short of amazing-and I don’t use the word “witness” lightly because every Hard Traveler performance is like a religious experience.
The Travelers played their hearts out, starting off with a rousing rendition of Woody Guthrie’s “Ain’t Gonna Be Treated This Way,” which set the tone for the afternoon-fun, furious and full of passion. Ya know, the kind of music that makes you want to get up and dance even if you don’t dance.
