Album Cover Gallery:
#191. The Great Folk Scare A-L
"Masters Of War" by Bob Dylan


Click the arrow for music


One could argue that Folk Music has always been with us. For the purpose of this Gallery we're going to focus on the years 1955-1965, but also throw in some more contemporary folks. Of course Bob Dylan is the king, although Woody Guthrie showed him the way, Joan Baez was the shining light, and Pete Seeger was the conscience of the movement. My other 60's favorites include Fred Neil, Tim Hardin, Gordon Lightfoot and Judy Collins. On the pop side, nobody was bigger than The Kingston Trio, but people who considered themselves "folkies" dismissed them. It turned out it could still get worse with the likes of Trini Lopez and The New Christy Minstrels, etc. I've included all shades of the folk spectrum. If you like this kind of thing, pick up the book "The Mayor of Greenwich Village" by and about Dave Van Ronk and the Greenwich Village folk scene. Only one album per artist is shown below.
