The Golden Glows present 'The Anthology of American Folk Music'

AB launches the (ambitious) plan to, over the coming years, once again shine a spotlight on the masterful compilation ‘The Anthology Of American Folk Music’ (Folkways Records, 1952). ‘The Anthology’ was compiled by American eccentric & 78 rpm collector Harry Smith and, with its 84 songs, it is considered to be the bible of American folk. In other words: the equivalent of ‘The Great American Songbook’.

The plan? Every year, AB will invite one (inter)national artist who has been influenced by or is inspired by this masterful collective work.

The start signal will be given by Antwerp trio The Golden Glows. No wonder really, as the Glows have been specialising in pop music from bygone times since ‘05 and in Americana from the ’20s and ’30s in particular.
