Depression Folk

University of North Carolina Press

The depression’s early years gave way to an upsurge of confidence and an artistic renaissance. This was bolstered by the coming era of the common man, when vernacular culture, including music, gained a renewed vigor spurred by the increasing popularity of the Communist and Socialist Parties, as well as the expanding labor unions. John and Alan Lomax were particularly active in collecting and promoting folk music.
