What does the term folk music mean in the 21st century? What
        connects the blues guitarist to the Irish fiddler, the urban songwriter
        to the Cajun band, the folk-rocker to the cowboy singer?
        What separates folk from other genres? How did folk become
        what it is today? Using live, recorded, and archival music,
        sprinkled with a lifetime of colorful tales about folk music, the
        instructor takes us on a vibrant journey down the tributaries of
        tradition, to see how they shape the modern musical landscape.
        Limited to 20.
