The West Coast

the East Coast primarily nurtured the contemporary folk scene, Los
Angeles and San Francisco were parallel hubs of the folk music revival.
In late 1945 Pete Seeger established People's Songs, Inc., to use folk
and topical songs to further postwar progressive political and social
issues. Within months composer/folksinger Earl Robinson opened the New
York operation's first branch office in Los Angeles, attracting labor

The Weavers, Gilkyson sang the lead on On Top Of Old Smoky, which rose
to No. 2 on the Billboard pop chart. In 1955 he joined Dehr and Miller's
Easy Riders. Besides jointly collaborating on Memories Are Made Of
This, the Easy Riders accompanied Dean Martin on his No. 1 hit single.

the early New York folk scene fostered an alluring Bohemian atmosphere,
the West Coast singers created a sunnier approach. Many performers were
tied to the entertainment industry, writing scores or acting in films
and television. Performers like Rod McKuen, Mason Williams, Mike Settle,
Travis Edmonson, Van Dyke Parks and John Stewart were gifted lyricists
and skilled, melodic composers. When Bob Dylan shook up the East Coast
folk music community in 1962, their careers and styles were already
