Almanac Singers


The brief time that the Almanac Singers were together went by like a meteor shower, only with more lasting effects. During the two years of their existence, the ad hoc assemblage of folk singers, left-wing activists, and writers who got their name from the rooming house that they shared recorded five albums and a handful of singles for independent New York-based record labels including General, Asch, and Keynote. But more than sixty years after their short time together, their recordings continue to fascinate not only musical but cultural and political historians. The core members of the group included Pete Seeger (b. 1919) and Woody Guthrie (1912–1967), although performers such as Lee Hays, Millard Lampell, Tom Glazer, Josh White, Butch Hawes, and others drifted in and out, with no set group appearing from session to session.
