Handy, Spook Songs of the Great Depression and Today History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
When the Great Depression hit, a whole new genre of American folk music was born. Songs about the Dust Bowl, the Great Migration, bread lines and soup kitchens, the New Deal and times of triumph and struggle circulated throughout labor camps, churches and family gatherings. These songs depicted down-to-earth everyday realities of the American laborer and farmer, the hungry and the industrious, centuries old traditions and the transition to a new modern society. It can be surprising how many of these old songs speak of challenges we face today and how new songs written about today's America can so resemble the songs of the Great Depression. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.
