Nine young singer/musicians take audiences on a journey down the rivers and streams of American folk - from the backwoods of Appalachia to the nightclubs of San Francisco and New York. Dramatizing key moments in the history of the American folk revival, they portray characters such as The Carter Family, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Odetta, Leadbelly, The Kingston Trio, and Joan Baez.
Along the way, audiences are invited to sing along to classics such as Goodnight, Irene, This Land Is Your Land, Puff the Magic Dragon, Baby Blue, and We Shall Overcome. Weaving together a tapestry of the venues and historic circumstances that put folk at the core of American society from the 1920s to the 1960s, Lonesome Traveler celebrates the legacy of folk as the soundtrack of social change and moral revolution.
