Details

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.
