American Folk Song Festival: Jean Thomas, The Traipsin' Woman

Created in 1931, the American Folk Song Festival helped Kentucky mountain singers share their music with the world. Perhaps more relevantly, it allowed the rest of the world to hear the music of these singers, including members of the Hatfield and McCoy families. This album was recorded in the 1950s, and features singers of all ages.
