A key resource on an American musical tradition.

The traditional songs, dances, and legends of ordinary people in the United States have long served as a means of communication and a source of entertainment. Each group brought its unique song and dance music to America: The Irish brought jigs and reels, the African-American slaves work and dance songs, Hispanics their corridos and polkas, Cajuns their waltzes and two-steps. The interaction between these groups created the many rich hybrids that are American folk music.

Featuring 36 photographs, a glossary, discography, and chronology, American Popular Music: Folk is an essential resource on this vital and influential American art form.

Entries include:
  • The Archive of American Folk Song
  • Moses Asch
  • Joan Baez
  • Harry Chapin
  • Bob Dylan
  • Fairport Convention
  • Woody Guthrie
  • The Irish Rovers
  • John and Alan Lomax
  • Eck Robertson
  • Pete Seeger
  • Townes Van Zandt
  • Lucinda Williams
  • John W. Work
  • and many others.
