Depression Folk

University of North Carolina Press

Folk music’s exposure, publications, and left-wing ties increased through 1937. The Popular Front, with its focus on the folk arts, melded with the New Deal’s cultural programs. John and Alan Lomax, in particular, continued with their field work, joined by numerous others. Woody Guthrie emerged as the dust bowl bard. Greenwich Village in New York City became a magnet for vernacular performers.

Keywords:   Alan Lomax, John Lomax, Woody Guthrie, Labor songs, Greenwich Village
