Outlaws

Outlaws are not uniquely American, but the myth of the outlaw is deeply embedded in the folklore of American history from the Western Frontier Days of the late19th Century into the Dust Bowl and Great Depression and right up DB Cooper in 1971. Folk music has always served as a sort of social media, chronicling class struggles and political unrest, and there is a rich vein of folk songs about outlaws.

Join me to hear listen to songs about famous outlaws like Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Pretty Boy Floyd, Machine Gun Kelly, Bonnie and Clyde, and DB Cooper.

It was really tough being an outlaw woman, as we’ll hear near the end of the show with songs about Outlaw women of the American West Belle Starr, the Rose of Cimarron Rose Dunn, and Cattle Annie & Little Britches.

Featured Folk music social media influencers/artists include Richard Thompson, Roger Miller, Joe Ely & Joel Guzman, Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore, The Pogues, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger & Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Glenn Campbell & Merle Haggard, James Taylor, Ashleigh Flynn, and Loreena McKennitt.
