Welcome to Folk Freeway!

This site is a companion to my graduate research on the folk music revival in greater Los Angeles (c. 1958-1965). I’ll be using these pages to share new writing, reflect on the research process, and muse on folk-related happenings in L.A. and beyond. Check out the “Blog” section for new content, and by all means, get in touch with your feedback and thoughts. I’m grateful that you stopped by!

“If you know something and don’t want to share it, then you are selfish. You came after someone, and someone else will come after you. You can’t learn the entire sea by heart. No. This is why God created waves in the river and in the sea. Some leave, and some come.”        – Ali Farka Touré
