Lomax the Songhunter is an excellent documentary
11 September 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

For years, I've heard about Alan Lomax and his folk recordings for the Library of Congress but it wasn't until I saw this documentary on the PBS series P.O.V. that I even had an inkling of what he did. This film is as good a start as any to learn about this important researcher and his preservation efforts among various folk artists around the world. We go to Italy, Spain, and, Ireland to hear various work songs and we see Lomax himself sing some of his favorites. He is shown in various times in his life up to just before he died in 2002 when he could hardly speak. And Pete Seeger recounts of his own discovery by Lomax. So if you love to hear unique music of various cultures, I suggest you definitely seek this one out.
