Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, David Crosby, Harry Chapin, Joni Mitchell, Richie Havens and many more brought their voices and lyrics to the spirit of traditional folk music inspired by Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and others. This series explores the origins of American Folk Music and how it evolved to the 1960’s becoming a mainstream part of American music and culture.
