Very hard to narrow it down...but my heart belongs to Pete Seeger.

Lots of favorite roots music in the folk and folk rock categories, but I thought I'd pick one less likely to get attention: Beau Jocque & The Zydeco Hi-Rollers, "Comin' in" being a good sample. Living Zydeco music: Little Malcombe. This music is so "in your soul" that it will make you move even if you don't know how to dance zydeco.

My favorite is Pete Seeger. I trust anything Putumayo puts together, though!

Love the Blues...particularly by artists of color such as "Guitar Gabriel" (on Music Maker Recordings)some of whom died or continue to live in poverty never having been fairly compensated for their work at the time. Does not get any more American Roots than that.

My favourite roots song has to be Drill Ye Tarriers. We used to sing it around the piano gowing up, harmonizing on the choruses.

I'm hooked on Putamayo music, always what I reach for first to put on or keep on a happy face. Favorites include Music from the Coffee and Tea Lands, Women of the World, Asian Lounge, African Playground. I haven't bought any recent ones as funds are light. Always Happy Trails for and from me....to you!

Reading all the comments makes me want to pull out a whole bunch of my Putumayo CDs! Have to agree with Michael's comment -- about Pete Seeger AND Putumayo.

He ha, Putumayo publishes a prize-winning piece of American pleasure in a 9-CD packet! My heart is pounding with excitement, and it would really delight if I could win them songs. Mmm hmm… I have a plethora of Putumayo French and World CDs. Getting back to my American roots would be a great way to spend the sweet summer days.

I was thrilled to see that Garcia and Grisman and Railroad Earth are on this great Putamayo CD. Of course, who doesn't love "Man of Constant Sorrow". Our family has always loved the Putamayo CDs.

We played I'll Fly Away at my grandpa's funeral. It was beautiful and sad. I would love to share this music with my son.
