Political Folk


Political Folk follows in the footsteps of the legendary Woody Guthrie, whose highly polemical folk songs inspired a generation of tough-minded, activist singer/songwriters including Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs; simply, protest music follows the aesthetic traditions of folk, but with lyrics which take a definite, usually left-wing, political stance.
