Digitizing Folk Music History: Introduction Music Mix

Pete Seeger with Eleanor Roosevelt and others,

reviving the history of the folk revival for current college students.

In Digitizing Folk Music History, we start out doing a lot of listening. Here is the playlist students tune in to at the start of our seminar. It’s just a sampling. The list could go on and on. There’s a special Berkeley Folk Music Festival slant to some of the selections since we use the Berkeley Folk Music Festival Collection at Northwestern for research.
