with original Folkways recordings to demonstrate the lasting legacy that

Folkways Records has on popular music. Recent and archival interviews with

Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, Mickey Hart, Studs Terkel, and

others help reveal the remarkable human stories behind this equally

remarkable collection. The series was produced by CKUA Radio in Alberta,

Milod - I am glad there are people willing to devote their lives to music like that. Those 'collected works" are a treasure, to me because the alos provide insight into the music, as well as the chords, melodies and lyrics. Sometimes I think people like the Lomax family (Carter, Cash. Williams..) contribute more to the greater good than all our "public servants" IE. elected officials rolled up in a ball !!
