Just about anything Dunaway writes about the folk music revival is worth reading. Highly recommended.

I bought as a Christmas gift. My brother-in-law read the book in 2 weeks. Loved it! Great for music buffs.

Well written,
but nothing new. I expected more. It is good value but maybe all that needs to be said has been said of this period.

Books on folk singing are few and far between, so it is good to have this edition which has interviews with about 63 of the best folksingers around, although some have passed on by now. The format is done by comments in sections covering subjects such as: define folk music, early collecting, Greenwich Village, the Red Scare, the folk boom in the 60's, folk-rock, nu-folk and the power of music.

There is an introduction by Pete Seeger and short biographies of the interviewees, a discography and an index.
Included interviewees are such people as, Don McLean, Arlo Guthrie, Oscar Brand, Judy Collins, Ronnie Gilbert, Holly Near and of course Pete Seeger plays a prominent part. Some refused to be interviewed -Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bruce Springsteen and Alan Lomax. Missing are groups such as the Kingston Trio, The Brothers Four and The (original) Highwaymen. They were deemed by most of the interviewees as not legitimate folksingers, even though they popularized the genre for many of the others.
There are some interesting facts to learn, such as Country Joe McDonald crediting Pete Seeger with inspiring his " I'm Feel-like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag".

Even though this book was published in 2010 and many of the interviewees were still alive, more than half the interviews are from ones done in the 70's. I was really expecting some recent thoughts which would have been appealing. Still this book serves its' purpose of teaching about the folksong genre.

David King Dunaway has immersed himself in "Folk Music" for more than 30 years He has written at least two biographies of "folk music" legend, Pete Seeger. Along the way he made MANY recorded interviews with those involved in "folk music" and these recordings and the transcriptions are now deposited at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

In this easy-to-read book, Dunaway and co-author Molly Beer have culled great quotes from nearly 150 of the interviews to try to present an over view of what "folk music" is and why it saw a "revival" at least three times in the 20th Century. Many of the interviewees have passed on - either because of age (Charles Seeger, who was Dunaway's first interviewee in 1979) or untimely death (Phil Ochs, Mike Seeger) - and this is part of their legacy.

The book is divided into general subjects - the first being "What is Folk Music?", a section that tells us where each of the interviewees is coming from on the subject. Later sections discus the "folk revival of the 1950s", the second revival (Greenwich Village) in the late 1960s and the current singer-songwriter craze.

All the interviewees have something interesting or insightful to say. But, because it was an editorial judgment on Dunaway's and Beer's part to decide what portions to include - and in what order - these interviews may sometimes be taken out of context and should probably not be used as fact, unless the full interview is heard or the transcript read.

Still, as someone who has been a "folk music" fan since the late 1950s (I guess "Tom Dooley" started it off for me), I found the book fun to read and it brought back a lot of memories for me.
