Billy in the Lowgrounds MB96757VX $24.95

The Folksong Revival was a dynamic cultural event with its origins in the early 20th century. By the mid-1960's, it had captured American popular music, inspired a generation of folklorists, and served to reintroduce the United States to its vernacular musical roots. The Newport Folk Festival ran for seven years and was the largest of the venues where an urban audience could see traditional artists perform. At the 1966 Newport Festival, folklorist Alan Lomax took some of the old time musicians aside and filmed historic footage of them making music in an informal atmosphere. This footage is made available in this video for the first time. You will see legendary artists Clark Kessinger, Jimmy Driftwood, Kilby Snow, The Coon Creek Girls, Ison J Fontenot, Al and Virginia Manes, Tex Logan, and Grant Rogers performing some of their best numbers.
