Description - Alan Lomax by Ronald Cohen
Alan Lomax is a legendary figure in American folk music circles. Although he published many books, hundreds of recordings and dozens of films, his contributions to popular and academic journals have never been collected. This collection of writings, introduced by Lomax's daughter Anna, reintroduces these writings. Drawing on the Lomax archives in New York, this volume brings together articles from the 1930s onwards. It is divided into four sections, each capturing a distinct period in the development of Lomax's life and career: the original years as collector and promoter; the period from 1950-58 when Lomax was recording throughout Europe; the folk music revival years; and finally his work in academia.
