Example text

These were the blues sources and influences that were available in the Delta (and throughout much of the South), a combination of commercial culture and local possibilities. Fo l k B eco m es Mo re Aca d e m i c a n d P opu l a r In 1925, the Harvard University Press published John Harrington Cox’s Folk-Songs of the South, collected with the cooperation of the West Virginia Folk-Lore Society and dedicated to George Lyman Kittredge. The previous year Harvard had issued Roland Gray’s Songs and Ballads of the Maine Lumberjacks, indicating an interest beyond the South.

Henry C. Davis printed a similar collection in JAF in 1914, and E. C. Perrow included black “Songs and Rhymes from the South” at the same time in JAF. Most published sources focused on older spirituals, such as John W. Work and his brother Frederick J. Work in their booklet Folk Songs of American Negro in 1907. ” John Work, James Weldon Johnson, Nathaniel Dett, and other African-American composers collected spirituals and arranged them into a modern classical format, mostly to be used in church services.

By decade’s end public interest in the dances of the EFDSS had substantially declined, and the organization languished. The widespread economic collapse during the 1930s triggered radical political, social, as well as cultural movements, and thereby a search for authentic rural as well as urban working-class music, in order to draw from and connect with the people. Radical cultural organizations soon appeared, including the Workers’ Theatre Movement. Workers’ songs were nothing new, but now gained enhanced value, particularly as popularized by young cultural workers with a flair for organization and promotion.
