October: Folk and Country Songs
It's Folk Hootenanny! and a night at the Grand Ole Opry!
In the late 1950s and early 1960s, folk music legends like Pete Seeger led local get-togethers known as hootenannies while clubs, such as Gerde's Folk City, dominated the Greenwich Village scene. Meanwhile, at the "true home of country music" (the Grand Ole Opry), country comedians such as Minnie Pearl joined with Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Patsy Cline, and Roger Miller to define the country sound
