Singer-Songwriter: When The Roses Bloom Again by Billy Bragg & Wilco. When The Roses Bloom Again   During the spring of 1995, Woody Guthrie's daughter Nora contacted English singer-songwriter, Billy Bragg, about writing music for a selection of completed Guthrie lyrics after Bragg played a Guthrie tribute concert in New York City's Central Park. Her father had left behind over a thousand sets of complete lyrics written between 1939 and 1967; as they had not been recorded by Guthrie, and he did not write music, none of these lyrics had any music other than a vague stylistic notation.
