Protesting Songs have been around since the '60s, as most people know. Well, that's not quite true. There's been songs of protest as long as there's been singing, written down as long as there's been writing. It's not just Bob Dylan in the 1960s and Billy Bragg now. In fact, it's The Jane and Mike Band, looking back at Protesting Songs and looking forward, as well as telling you all they know about stuff they've written themselves. (This book includes song lyrics and website links to other places you can find out more about Protesting Songs.)
This book sets out to give some background knowledge of the history of protest songs and provide inspiration and tips for writing your own. It references many of the most well known songs in the genre and has several examples of songs written by the authors relating to their own experiences. Recommended for anyone who's interested in folk music!!
