Biography
A historian and folklorist in the tradition of Alan Lomax, New Yorker John Cohen went one step further, forming a revival band in the late '50s called the New Lost City Ramblers. One of the first groups to put together such an act, the Ramblers pre-dated the entire acoustic coffeehouse-return to roots boom of the early '60s. Branching out into film, Cohen made #The High Lonesome Sound in 1964, a documentary that dealt with the coal mining towns of Kentucky and introduced the world at large to the expert banjo picking of Roscoe Holcomb. After another film in 1974, #The End of an Old Song, Cohen briefly formed another revival band before eventually settling in as a college professor and musicologist. ~ Steve Kurutz, Rovi
