PLAYLIST: Folk Music
inTheir Musicon January 24, 2020
“Folk music is high class music, cause a lot of low class people sangin’ it. Matter of fact, most so-called folk singers don’t even look like folk. Folk songs tell true stories, terrible stories but true stories, cause folk are terrible. Terrible songs make big songs. Why do you think kids like Rock n’ Roll? Because it’s terrible!” – Abner Jay
Powerful words from the Fitzgerald, GA born roving multi-instrumentalist. While Music Maker never worked with Abner and most wouldn’t recognize his music – he is truly representative of the genre and that’s why he kicks off this playlist. Music Maker has partnered with some incredible Folk musicians that represent the unending diversity of folk music, from the Greenwich Village songster Patrick Sky to modern day folk pioneers the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
