THE FOLK REVIVAL REVISITED: PETE SEEGER, JUDY COLLINS, JIM KWESKIN, JERRY GARCIA, ALAN LOMAX, RAMBLIN' JACK ELLIOTT, JOAN BAEZ, BONNIE RAITT AND MORE

The American folk music revival that grew from the Post-WWII era to the Sixties was about more than just music: it wrapped in political activism, romantic visions of the self and the "folk," group "sing-a-longs," "hootenannies" and careers of singer-songwriters. We interview folk heroine Judy Collins about her move from traditional British folk songs to the new songs and sounds in Greenwich Village. Jug bandleader Jim Kweskin talks about his love of communal living. The late Pete Seeger and Alan Lomax offer opinions on their divergent views of folk music and the quest for authenticity. Jerry Garcia tells of his most influential folk music source and we'll hear Dylan go electric at Newport in 1965. Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops talks about bringing back the peoples' music of another era today.

GUITAR BOSSES: LES PAUL & HONEYBOY EDWARDS

Tune in and hear a classic show from our archives that pays witness to over 150 years of guitar experience between the guests from our original 2007 program. The late Les Paul, Wizard of Waukesha, talked about his leap from taking up the instrument to inventing the guitar heard 'round the world that still bears his name. And the late Delta guitarist and walking blues encyclopedia Honeyboy Edwards came by our studio back then to share memories of Robert Johnson, the 1927 flood, and recording for Alan Lomax along the way.

'WHERE HAVE ALL THE FOLK SONGS GONE?': THE ALAN LOMAX LEGACY AND A CONVERSATION W/PETE SEEGER

A year after his passing, American Routes remembers Alan Lomax, the great folklorist, musicologist and documentarian. While working mostly for the Library of Congress, Lomax made groundbreaking recordings with Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie, Jelly Roll Morton, Muddy Waters and countless others. Family and friends, contemporaries and musicians recall his many accomplishments. Lomax's sometime collaborator Pete Seeger took a different route as a singer of folksongs. The great social activist, environmentalist, and banjoman, Pete Seeger speaks of his life in music and social justice--two things he's brought together for over 60 years.
