John Jacob Niles Sings Folk Songs

John Jacob Niles Sings Folk Songs

Born in Jefferson County, Kentucky in 1892, John Jacob Niles was one of the most prolific private collectors of Anglo-American folk songs. His work predates Cecil Sharp's by nearly a decade, and this record—a reissue of Niles' 78rpm discs—celebrates his achievements.
