University of North Carolina Press

By the 1920s, folk music, from a variety of sources, had numerous outlets in the United States, including books and articles by folk music collectors, commercial phonograph records and field recordings, radio programs, public shows and concerts, fiddle contests, folk festivals, and plenty of home entertainments. The eclectic music industry sailed through the end of the decade in good shape, with country stars such as Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family doing particularly well.
