Odetta played a key role in resurrecting the history and vitality of folk music during the 1950s and 60s. Described as the queen of American folk music by Martin Luther King, jr., her career highlights include performances at the Newport Folk Festival, and the civil rights March on Washington. This LP, released by RCA Victor in 1963, was one of the year’s best selling folk albums. To get a taste of Odetta in action, check out the following clips.
