Although all these musicians, from Guthrie through Dylan, drew heavily from tradition and were well versed in ancient ballads, it was at this point that many of them began to write their own material, addressing highly relevant political issues of the day; some of these songs had enough universal resonance to become standards themselves. Folk music became strongly associated with progressive politics and the CivilRightsMovement.

In the British Isles and North America, a renewal of interest in folk music took place between the 1890s and the 1960s. As singers such as Music/WoodyGuthrie and Lead Belly led the scene during TheGreatDepression, it culminated in the American folk music revival, which began in 1948 with the rise of Pete Seeger and the Weavers. There was something of an interruption during the RedScare of TheFifties, since even playing a guitar was grounds for suspicion for communist sympathies, and some of the major figures like Pete Seeger and Ewan [=MacColl=] openly identified as socialists. However, the revival continued into TheSixties with the likes of Music/JoanBaez, Music/BobDylan and Music/PhilOchs.
