  • Folk City: New York and the American Folk Music Revival

  • Folk City: New York and the American Folk Music Revival
    From Washington Square Park and the Gaslight Cafe to WNYC Radio and Folkways Records, New York City's cultural, artistic, and commercial assets helped to shape a distinctively urban breeding ground for the folk music revival of the 1950s and 60s. Folk City explores New York's central role in fueling the nationwide craze for folk music in postwar America. It involves the efforts of record company producers and executives, club owners, concert promoters, festival organizers, musicologists, agents and managers, editors and writers - and, of course, musicians and audiences. In Folk City, authors Stephen Petrus and Ron Cohen capture the exuberance of the times and introduce readers to a host of characters who brought a new style to the biggest audience in the history of popular music. Among the savvy New York entrepreneurs committed to promoting folk music were Izzy Young of the Folklore Center, Mike Porco of Gerde's Folk City, and John Hammond of Columbia Records. While these and other businessmen developed commercial networks for musicians, the performance venues provided the artists space to test their mettle. The authors portray Village coffee houses not simply as lively venues but as incubators of a burgeoning counterculture, where artists from diverse backgrounds honed their performance techniques and challenged social conventions. Accessible and engaging, fresh and provocative, rich in anecdotes and primary sources, Folk City is lavishly illustrated with images collected fo

    The 18 tracks heard on this 1951 release were originally recorded in Haiti by Harold Courlander. Secular and religious music, work songs, and trance songs are all presented here. On "Pile Pied'M: Ibo Dance Song," polyrhythmic Ibo drumming weaves through a parable-like song: "Injury once done can not be talked away." With "M'Pas Bwe M'Pas Mange: Work Song," percussive sounds come from a group of men pounding grain in a large wooden mortar. While in a trance, a testifying priest acts a medium for the gods on "Spirit Conversation (Cult Priest at Leogane)." Harold Courlander's detailed introduction and liner notes contextualize this outstanding collection of Haitian folk music. ~ John Vallier
