Smithsonian Folkways FW-05802-CCD American History in Ballad and Song- Vol.2

Smithsonian Folkways Recordings is the nonprofit record label of the Smithsonian Institution the national museum of the United States. They are dedicated to supporting cultural diversity and increased understanding among peoples through the documentation preservation and dissemination of sound. Folkways Records believe that musical and cultural diversity contributes to the vitality and quality of life throughout the world. Through the dissemination of audio recordings and educational materials Folkways Records seek to strengthen people s engagement with their own cultural heritage and to enhance their awareness and appreciation of the cultural heritage of others. Our mission is the legacy of Moses Asch who founded Folkways Records in 1948 to document "people s music " spoken word instruction and sounds from around the world. The Smithsonian acquired Folkways from the Asch estate in 1987 and Smithsonian Folkways Recordings has continued the Folkways commitment to cultural diversity education increased understanding and lively engagement with the world of sound. Originally intended as a teaching aid for senior high school social studies and covering a broad scope of civic government economic citizenship and immigration issues this compilation provides a provocative mid century impression of America culled from witnesses to the first half of the twentieth century. We are treated to songs from Woody Guthrie Pete Seeger and Malvina Reynolds; speeches from Theodore Roosevelt Dwight Eisenhower Martin Luther King Jr. and Williams Jennings Bryan; so called "brag talk" by cowboys; and pronouncement of an oath of loyalty by Chief John Oberly of the "Osage Tribe of Indians" affirming that he will not conspire with any political parties to overthrow the US government.
