Festival to pay tribute to Guthrie on grounds of former hospital

Updated:
PARSIPPANY, N.J. (AP) _ A summer folk music festival on the grounds of Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital will pay tribute to a former patient -- Oklahoma native Woody Guthrie.

The August concert will also celebrate 300 acres of former hospital property being turned into parkland.

The Morris County Park Commission thought a folk festival might be a good transition from the past to the future at the park.

A date hasn't been finalized and no acts have been confirmed. The concert will be held at an amphitheater near the main hospital building.

Guthrie is best-known for the song ``This Land Is Your Land.''

He was a patient at Greystone in the 1950s.
