Profile:
American folklorist and musicologist, born 31 January 1915, Austin, Texas, USA and died 19 July 2002, Safety Harbor, Florida, USA. Son of John A. Lomax. Collected and edited the contents of the World Library Of Folk And Primitive Music, Southern Journey, and The Folk Songs Of Britain. An American ethnomusicologist, best known for his numerous field recordings of folk music of the 20th century. He was also a musician himself, as well as a folklorist, archivist, writer, scholar, political activist, oral historian, and film-maker. Lomax produced recordings, concerts, and radio shows in the US and in England, which played an important role in preserving folk music traditions in both countries, and helped start both the American and British folk revivals of the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s.
