Folk music is more than an idealized reminder of a simpler past. It reveals a great deal about present-day understandings of community and belonging. It celebrates the shared traditions that define a group or nation. In America, folk music - from African-American spirituals to English ballads and protest songs - renders the imagined community more tangible and comprises a critical component of our diverse national heritage. In ´´I Hear America Singing´´, Rachel Donaldson traces the vibrant history of the 20th-century folk music revival from its origins in the 1930s through its end in the late 1960s. She investigates the relationship between the revival and concepts of nationalism, showing how key figures in the revival - including Pete Seeger, Alan Lomax, Moses Asch, and Ralph Rinzler - used songs to influence the ways in which Americans understood the values, the culture, and the people of their own nation. 1.

This essay is a casual discussion about New York-based folk singer Wendy Sayvetz, who promotes subway entertainment in the New York City subway system, under the banner Music Under New York (MUNY). For many years Wendy Sayvetz has been committed to making subway entertainment a respectable activity. Wendy Sazvetz has performed across the country as well as at the White House. She and her husband, Andrew Schulman, a guitartis, run their music company, Abaca Productions. Sayvetz has a well-polished soprano voice, that is wholesome, melodic, and similar to that of Judy Collins and Joan Baez. Sayvetz sings across genre and gives each song her own interpretation. When I listen to her I think about how wonderful it would if she teamed up with Johnny Mathis.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Van Sweden.
