From Irish step dancers to rap, parlor songs to Dixieland, blues to classical, Discovering Folk Music presents the genre as surprisingly diverse, every bit the product of our national melting pot.--Demonstrating continuing relevance of folk music in our everyday lives while spotlighting an amazing array of personalities the book provides special emphasis on the folk revival era, when Dylan, Baez, Odetta, and Peter, Paul and Mary sang out and influenced the next generation, including Shawn Colvin, Ani DiFranco, and others.

These deep roots pervade with todays artists on the fringes of folk. Interviews with such legends as Janis Ian, Tom Paxton, Jean Ritchie, and Nora Guthrie, Woody s daughter, add color. Discovering Folk Music is a ground-breaking look at 21st-century folk music in our rapidly changing digital world, family-friendly while ripe for rediscovery by the Woodstock generation.--
