A Journey Down the Rivers and Streams of American Folk

“A warm, embracing, communal experience.” – _Los Angeles Times _

“Tom Dooley,” “Goodnight Irene,” “Puff, the Magic Dragon” “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “This Land is Your Land.” These songs remind us of a time when music brought us all together; when it changed us. Lonesome Traveler takes us from the backwoods of Appalachia to the nightclubs of New York and San Francisco; from the mid 1920s to the mid 1960s. Experience the music that made history and the history that made music. This is a journey down the rivers and streams of American Folk music, while presenting a revealing perspective of the roots forever embedded in our culture.
