This marvelous anthology compiled by Alan & John Lomax with music by Charles and Ruth Seeger literally fell into my lap today. This 1947 songbook is which in song origins of the canon of American Folk music.

More threads to follow.
Very surprised to see no Charles See her content on mudcat.

There has been some mention of Charles Seeger on mudcat. Type

                                  Charles Seeger

into the web, and you'll get among other mentions.

I have the book you mention, though my copy is called Folk Song U.S.A.

"Very surprised to see no Charles See her content on mudcat."

Possibly because Charles and Ruth Crawford Seeger were more into classical music. I guess the income from "arranging" music for folk songs brought in a better income.
Personally I am always wary of folk songs where the music has been "arranged" especially by classically trained musicians.
