Folk Music U.S.A. by : Ronald D. Lankford; Jr.
This definitive story of American folk music focuses on how a minority music genre suddenly became the emergent voice of a generation at the end of the Eisenhower years. From Kingston Trio's “Tom Dooley” in 1958 to Bob Dylan's electric performance at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965; folk influenced American culture and eventually became absorbed into popular music. The author also explores how authentic folk is now experiencing a second revival; taking its place in our contemporary fascination with roots music.
