    Wilco and Billy Bragg will team up to commemorate the 100th birthday of folk singer Woody Guthrie with the release of a four-disc box set compiling their Mermaid Avenue collaborations, including the never before released Volume III sessions.

    The 17-track Volume III also will be available digitally, separate from the box set. Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions box set is due to drop on April 21 and it also includes Kim Hopkins' 1999 film, Man in the Sand, which documents the collaborations between Bragg and Wilco, as well as a 48-page booklet with new liner notes by Nora Guthrie, full lyrics, archival photographs and more. So if you like Guthrie and how he inspired Wilco and Bragg, this is a "must own" for you.

    Who out there loves folk music?
