Summary

Including over 200 of Flerlage's photographs of folk musicians during the 1960s, Chicago Folk presents a stunning portrait of a vibrant urban folk milieu. Featuring popular performers such as Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, as well as old and new traditional musicians like the New Lost City Ramblers and other blues, bluegrass, old-time, Cajun and gospel performers who appeared in Chicago, these images capture the broad scope of folk musicians who were part and parcel of the 1960s folk music revival in Chicago and elsewhere.
