New Jersey shaped folk revival music into an art form. The saga began with the bawdy tunes sung in colonial-era taverns and continued with the folk songs that echoed through the Pine Barrens. "Guitar Mania" became a phenomenon in the 1800s, and twentieth-century studio recordings in Camden were monumental. Performances by legendary artists like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan spotlighted the state's folk revival movement and led to a flourishing community of folk organizations, festivals and open-mic nights at village coffeehouses. Author Michael Gabriele traces the evolution and living history of folk revival music in the Garden State and how it has changed the lives of people on stage and in the audience.

Editorial Reviews

"From the "boisterous" songs of the 1800s to the songs of Jersey natives Janis Ian and Bruce Springsteen, and from bluegrass to "New Grass," Gabriele's book serves as a catalog of folk music in New Jersey, a quirky collection that would make one of the original folk-music archivists of the modern era, the late Harry Smith, proud."
