Chico Schwall's American Roots - "The Story Is The Song"


Chico Schwall's American Roots series presents "The Story is the Song," an exploration of the storytelling component at the heart of American music. Songs have told stories since there have been songs, epic stories, celebrations of legendary characters like John Henry and new stories including the English "Broadside" ballads, gallows confessionals and true stories of historical events. Sometimes they were humorous songs or work-group pastimes. The tradition continues, being heard in more recent songs by Tom T. Hall, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan.
