Frank in the swamps Most significant Folkie of 20th Century? (125* d) RE: Most significant Folkie of 20th Century? 12 Jan 99


I'd like to nominate W.C. Handy, who brought an obscure Black American style to light.. the Blues. Not only did he elevate this musics profile, but his early arrangements/compositions were important contributions to the creation of jazz, an "art music" which still has direct links to it's folk roots.

Frank i.t.s.
