  • 3. Book Thesis
    Richard Carlin seeks to provide a history of Folkways Records, outlining important individuals along with the social and cultural outcomes produced by the existence of a “different” kind of record label.

  • 6. Social and Cultural Implications of Folkways
    Moses Acsh created a record company that recorded all sound. All musicians were welcome, regardless of skin color.
    Early records put out by Folkways were Jazz records, employing the “unemployable” according to other record companies of the time.

    Chapter examines the close friendship of three individuals who made a huge contributions to folk music.
    Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, and Pete Seeger
  • 8. Woody Guthrie
  • 9. Leadbelly
  • 10. Pete Seeger
  • 11. Professional Use?
    The book is not written for professionals, it simply seeks to tell the story of Folkways.
    My use of the book is merely for the historical aspect of it. The book tells another side to Woody Guthrie while offering a glimpse into his friendships with Leadbelly, Pete Seeger, and above all Moses Asch
