The roots of folk music run deep. This book charts the development of this uniquely American Music form from the earliest European immigrants through to the present. It also shows how social, economic, and regional factors have all helped to shape folk music over time and, in turn, how this music has gone on to influence other genres, such as Rock, Country, and the Blues.
