Folk Revival

Hours: 
Thursday 7:00pm to 11:00pm

The Folk Revival features the “folk of the folk renaissance” from the second half of the last century right through into the millennium. Focusing on the folk boom of the 1950s and the 1960s, this four hour show will also visit recordings from both before and well after that period,  highlighting folk music as a living and ever-changing tradition, connecting listeners and music through an eclectic mix of traditional songs, topical and  protest music, singer-songwriter creations, the blues, folk rock, and more. The Folk Revival takes listeners on a journey through our musical roots, from Lomax to the latest. Themed shows are particular favorites (traditional songs, old songs by new artists, folk love songs, folk songs of the Spirit, a history of folk groups, humorous/satirical folk songs, protest songs, Top 40 folk, western songs, women of the Folk Revival, etc.). Do you want to suggest a theme? Request a song? Talk about the music? React to the show? Correct the host (nicely, of course)? Share and/or find out more about the folk music tradition? Feel free to contact the host: nicknoble@wicn.org.
