Hey, I'm with Alice on the dobro! Loved the Kingston Trio music my older brother played growing up...which led to Bob Dylan then T.Monk and on and on. Rich history, banjos and foot-tapping tunes --especially with Grisman..magic fingers!

Playing Putumayo recordings always creates such a great environment to relax enjoy life.

I'm a 4/5 teacher, and sharing this amazingly significant music with my students is something I try to do on a regular basis. Putamayo has been my go-to source for a long time!

I would have to say Arlo Guthrie - a fellow Brooklynite, homegrown and raised.

Without a doubt my favorite song would always be Pecos Bill. My mom used to sing the Spanish version to me and my brothers when we were little and I would love to learn the English version to sing it to my baby!

I especially enjoy folk music, and classic rock, but love to kick back and relax with some bluegrass from time to time. I especially enjoy The Dillards 1963 album Back Porch Bluegrass...loved 'em ever since seeing them as the Darlings on Andy Griffith.

Taking up piano and ukelele at an "advanced" age, I find plinking out the notes to such classic American songs as "Red River Valley," "Skip to My Lou," "I've Been Working on the Railroad" and so many more to be very rewarding. There is beauty and simplicity to the tunes. By the way, I have an extensive collection of Putumayo titles.

Listening to American Roots and Bluegrass music lifts my spirit and warms my heart. I have been a fan of Putumayo ever since I bought Zydeco music. Love it.

Omigosh. Who don't I like? Doc Watson was a favorite. Woody Guthrie was one of the first I listened to. Burl Ives is fun for the children (young and old). Love mountain music. Exquisitely clear vocals, plaintive fiddles, banjos, and throw in some clogging and I call that a good time.

Feel the music in your bones, tap your toes and swing along. As a dance teacher in public schools ....Putamayo helps my students learn about all kinds of people and their music.

YIPEE KI YO KI YAY !!!! I sure hope I win !! I love Putumayo compilations !! I love American Roots music...and am hard pressed to choose one artist. It's a toss between Blues and Country ....I love Jimmie Rodgers and Otis Spann...amongst others.

I love American roots and Pete Seeger is my all-time favorite, although it's hard to choose because I love them all!
