The first printed sources of thousands of folk songs were the periodicals dedicated to folk music. From early Pete Seeger to late Arlo Guthrie, these magazines provide a unique source for the study of Americana. This file collects three seminal folk music periodicals for convenient use. Broadside contained the newest songs of the sixties. Many well-known artists, mostly American, were featured and published in this Seeger-founded publication, including Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Arlo Guthrie, Buffy Sainte-Marie, and Pete Seeger. Publication was monthly from 1962 to 1973, irregular through 1982, then monthly again from 1982 to 1987. People's Songs was the spiritual progenitor of Broadside, founded by Seeger and filmed from his own collection with his personal comments interleaved. The magazine was published from 1946 through 1948. New City Songster was an English cousin of Broadside, edited by Peggy Seeger and Ewan MacColl from 1968 until 1984. Primarily focusing on British protest songs, this periodical also had a distinctly international flavor.
Canada is partying with “unanimity” and “heartiness” like it’s 1867.
