Our love affair with folk songs runs as deep as the enduring power of music, nature, creativity, and the longings of the human heart. Artist Jennie Smith celebrates the tradition with her illustrated renderings of thirteen soulful songs, including time-honored Scottish ballads, classics by the likes of the Carter Family, contemporary favorites by Gillian Welch, and more. Smith’s art—hopeful, sincere, and delicate—adds an unexpected and charming dimension to a familiar genre. With a foreword from contemporary folk legend Michael Hurley, complete lyrics, and playable tablature or sheet music for each song, this is a keepsake collection for the whole family to treasure.
Jennie Smith is a San Francisco–based artist. Her work was featured in the 2006 Whitney Biennial, and has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally. Michael Hurley is a renowned folk musician. He lives in Oregon.
