American Folkmusic Revival

Traditional folksongs are customary songs with unknown composers that were passed along orally from one generation to the next prior to recording technology. Although many folksongs became known as popular songs, they are not considered commercial or classical in style. This presentation explores origins and evolutions of Traditional American folksongs that were recorded during the American Folkmusic Revival (1940s-1960s). Songs recorded by artists such as Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, Burl Ives, Joan Baez, Jean Ritchie, Bob Dylan, Odetta, Nina Simone, Pete Seeger and more. Artists and Songs are discussed then shared live.
