Folk music : a regional exploration by Norm Cohen( )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Folk music scholar Norm Cohen presents a thorough exploration of the many ways in which folk music genres and sub-genres have arisen in different regions of America. Chapters on folk song types, folk instrumentation, and the urban folk revival set further context to the discussion, and an itemized summary of noted folksong collections serves as an additional tool for both general readers and folk music scholars."--Jacket

American folk songs : a regional encyclopedia by Norm Cohen( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This state-by-state collection of folksongs describes the history, society, culture, and events characteristic of all fifty states. Unlike all other state folksong collections, this one does not focus on songs collected in the particular states, but rather on songs concerning the life and times of the people of that state. The topics range from the major historical events, such as the Boston Tea Party, the attack on Fort Sumter, and the California Gold Rush, to regionally important events such as disasters and murders, labor problems, occupational songs, ethnic conflicts. Some of the songs will be widely recognized, such as "Casey Jones," "Marching Through Georgia," or "Sweet Betsy from Pike." Others, less familiar, have not been reprinted since their original publication, but deserve to be studied because of what they tell about the people of these United States, their loves, labors, and losses, and their responses to events. The collection is organized by regions, starting with New England and ending with the states bordering the Pacific Ocean, and by states within each region. For each state there are from four to fifteen songs presented, with an average of 10 songs per state. For each song, a full text is reprented, followed by discussion of the song in its historical context. References to available recordings and other versions are given. Folksongs, such as those discussed here, are an important tool for historians and cultural historians because they sample experiences of the past at a different level from that of contemporary newspaper accounts and academic histories. These songs, in a sense, are history writ small

8 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethnic and border music : a regional exploration( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Just as American culture has been constructed by people of many ethnicities, roots music in America is multicultural in nature. Native American music resonates from Indigenous traditions of the Great Plains and the American West. Hispanic culture has spawned Border Music styles such as Conjunto and Tejano, while Cajun and Zydeco grew from cultural cross-pollination in the American South. In northern regions, Polish-American musicians popularized Polka, while Irish-American music holds a rich tradition throughout many regions in the East. This unique volume presents influential musical cultures from throughout the multicultural history of American vernacular song."--Publisher's description

A substantial new introduction updates this edition."--Jacket

Ozark folksongs by Vance Randolph( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Characteristic of the compiler's careful work is the painstaking accuracy with which dialect peculiarities are preserved. Randolph scrupulously avoided correcting pronunciation or adding missing words or forgotten lines. Because, as he explains in his introduction, many of the people who sang for him were reluctant to have their voices recorded, his texts represent the best possible reproduction of this priceless American folk art
