The Folk Music Revival is a short history of the urban folk revival, especially during the 1950s and 1960s. The folk revival was rooted in 19th and early 20th century folk song collecting, field recordings by Alan Lomax and others, and songs of solidarity and protest during the 1930s labour movement. Beginning with the commercial breakthrough of the Weavers in 1950, we will examine the postwar urban folk revival in the US and Canada. Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Ian and Sylvia, Peter, Paul and Mary and other icons of the revival will be given special attention. After examining the fusions of folk and rock in the 1960s, we'll conclude with a discussion of the folk legacy in the singer-songwriter milieu and contemporary folk music traditions. Each lecture is enriched with video clips, rare images and music clips.
