GeoffLawes 3 New Guthrie songs of Spanish Civil War (5) 3 New Guthrie songs of Spanish Civil War 15 Jan 17

In the current Newsletter of the International Brigades Memorial Trust ( January 2017 edition) Jim Jump, secretary of the IBMT, reports that last October three previously unheard songs written by Woody Guthrie, about the Spanish Civil War, were "recited" at a public performance by Will Kauffman. Will Kauffman discovered them in the archives of the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa Oklohoma and was given permission to recite them on condition that the songs were not transcribed or recorded. Can anyone tell us anything more about the songs such as their titles? And why would the Guthrie family want to limit access to these songs ?
