Found Photos And Folk Music : NPR

Some background information: In the 1930s, the government hired some of the country’s best photographers to document daily life in Depression-era America. And a big part of life was music. Hard Luck Blues: Roots Music Photographs From the Great Depression, contains photos of 1930s music in America — images of the last generation to learn music before the advent of recording technology. Remsberg stopped by NPR to discuss it; hear his thoughts, to the tune of “The Kicking Mule,” a Depression-era folk song from the Library of Congress.
