In 1947, "Folk Song USA" was published -- a compilation of 111 American ballads collected by noted musicologists John and Alan Lomax and edited by Charles and Ruth Crawford Seeger (with guitar/banjo chords by Pete Seeger). Unlike earlier, words-only collections, this book was meant to be sung! It also detailed the history of each song by sub-genre, offering valuable insights on pre-WWII American rural life. Host Nick Noble has brought together covers of many of the songs that appear in this book, recorded by dozens of talented folk artists past and present. Explore America's folk music past for four melodious hours on THE FOLK REVIVAL: and maybe even sing along!
Nick DiBiasio’s passion for music began on the evening of Sunday, February 9, 1964, when The Beatles made their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. Against The Grain features Americana music by many local and international artists.
