Newport Folk Festival 1963 - The Evening Concerts Vol. 2

This is an album of exceptional vintage folk performances from the Newport Folk Festival in 1963 called "The Evening Concerts: Volume 2" on the Vanguard label

Here's what the notes have to say: "No one who attended the Newport Folk Festival of 1963 would soon forget the three memorable nights and days of music-making. At the end, Seeger called to the stage all the festival singers he could find and led them in the singing of a song by another great contributor to American Folk Music, Woodrow Wilson Guthrie; the song? "This Land is Your Land" - known by many as the "American Folk National Anthem." 

Some of the artists include: Bessie Jones, Jackie Washington, Bob Davenport, Judy Collins, Theodore Bikel, Dave Van Ronk, Jean Redpath, Jean Carignan, and Pete Seeger.
