The folk music sourcebook
This book, revised and updated for this Da Capo edition, goes far beyond any other guide for the listener, collector, singer, player, and devotee of folk music. From string band to bluegrass, Canadian, Creole, Zydeco, North American Indian, Chicano, Caribbean, jug bands, ragtime, and the many kinds of blues, this guide will tell you where to go for what. It doesn't merely list; it evaluates, reviews, and recommends. In a single volume it includes all the information you need--from what's on record (and how good is it?) to thoughts about choosing and buying an instrument, and all the places where folk music flourishes.
