FROM THE LATE 1950s through to early 1960s there was a popular revival of folk music both in the UK and the USA (and probably some other countries too). This was the era of the Protest Song, these protest songs (usually performed with just voice and guitar), were intended to inspired the nation and the world against racial segregation, military draft, McCarthyism, blacklists, censorship, the cold war. nuclear war, nuclear fallout, and similar themes. The sentiments expressed in these songs seemed to strike a chord with the younger generation and the their already growing antiestablishment feelings. Famous performers of this movement included Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Tom Rush, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Judy Collins, The New Lost City Ramblers and Peter, Paul & Mary.
