Rock Legends: Songs for the People
Songs for the People
Season 10  |  Episode 5  |  Foxtel Arts  |  October 28, 2020

Protest songs about the conditions experienced in the 1920s and 1930s were written using traditional folk hillbilly/bluegrass traditions. Acts such as The Freedom Singers overthrowing 50s attitudes, bringing issues such as the Civil Rights Movement of the late 1950s and early 1960s into focus. This gave folk music a tremendous strength in the US creating such legends as Joan Baez, Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger.
