Alan Lomax: A Life in Folk Music
MetadataShow full item record
Alan Lomax's career was long, almost seventy years, and his interests many and varied. He achieved so much in those seventy years that it is impossible for any short account of his life and work to be comprehensive. The following overview is therefore necessarily selective and, to avoid duplication, I have passed quickly over those aspects of Alan's career emphasized by Ron Cohen, but I hope that it covers the ground reasonably.systematically and at least hits the highlights of a remarkable, indeed quite extraordinary, story. This was a man whose like we shall not often see again.
