I love all roots music. Putumayo's World Playground is one of my favorites....tiki tiki toc....Fatou yo....but my favorite song on the cd is the American roots tune, Eric Bib's Just Keep Goin' On is not only a funky song but a great message!

I have several Putumayo CD's that I have enjoyed over the years. I have bought several for my granddaughter too as she grows up. I love Bluegrass music. I don't listen to it much though so would love to receive your new CD. I just spent a week down in the Missouri Ozarks on the Current River and saw a poster for a Bluegrass Festival coming. Too bad it wasn't happening when we were there. I have always enjoyed Pete Seeger and many others. Thanks so much!

I have always enjoyed Dolly Parton! She has a country soul with a bluegrass twist!

Roots music of America? Woody Guthrie has to come to mind along with his son, and Roger Miller. Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Dean Martin, Dr John, Roy Rogers and the list never ends.

It's a tough choice, but I think my favorite would have to be Alison Krauss. I have been a fan for many years. Love bluegrass!

Born outside Liverpool, England and emigrated to the US in the 60's. I've collected most of the Putamayo European CDs and enjoyed being introduced to the American roots music, which reminds me a little of the British folk songs I still love. I would be overjoyed to increase my knowledge of American music by winning this contest. Thank you.

We love all American roots music. Some of our family is from West VA and we enjoy listening to their annual bluegrass and traditional fiddling music festival. I love these CDs too - great music!

I love this sort of music. Currently two of my favorite bands are the Tillers out of Cincinnati and the Whiskey Bent Valley Boys from Kentucky. Awesome newcomers with great takes on traditional music. I also love the more famous musicians. Both the old timers (Bill Monroe, etc.) and the newer artists (Allison Kraus, Gillian Welch, etc.).

Tough call! Lucinda Williams? Anything with banjo? Music with Appalachian influence? My mom grew up in West Virginia, so it's in my blood.

Tennessee Ernie Ford...I would listen to the only record we had over and over again. Sixteen tons! And his gospels! This era of time tells stories that have long been forgotten. Brings back memories of stories my parents told. They give history lessons. I have gotten my grandchildren in my truck and put in some of my "old" music, where they couldn't get away and by the time we reached our destination they were singing right along and hardly missing a word. Doesn't get any better than sharing generations of music.
