Peter Kennedy (2). Real Name: Peter Douglas Kennedy. Profile: Peter Kennedy (born November 18, 1922 in London, England; died June 10, 2006 in Leckhampton, Gloucestershire, England) was a folklorist, folk-music field recordist, broadcaster, film-maker and musician. Founder of Folktracks (2). Variations: Viewing All Peter Kennedy (2).

In 1946 Alan Lomax invited the prolific ballad singer Texas Gladden, of Saltville, Virginia, and her brother, t Hobart Smith, to perform with Andrew Rowan Summers and Jean Ritchie at Columbia University’s MacMillan Theater as part of a festival held by the university. The concert recordings of the two are included here. Lomax interviewed Gladden and Smith extensively during their stay in New York and also introduced them to Moses Asch, who issued an album of four of their recordings on his Disc label (later Folkways), with cover art by painter Ben Shahn

Peter Douglas Kennedy (18 November 1922 – 10 June 2006) was an English collector of folk songs in the 1950s. Peter's father, Douglas, was EFDSS director after Cecil Sharp. Peter's mother, Helen, was the sister of Cecil Sharp's amanuensis Maud Karpeles. Kennedy was one of the presenters of the BBC folk music programme As I Roved Out, broadcast during the 1950s which featured collecting recordings of traditional singers.

Alan Lomax died on 19 July 2002. Born in Austin, Texas, on 31 January 1915, Alan was the third child of John and Bess (nee Brown) Lomax. He spent most of his youth in Dallas and Austin, graduating with a . in Philosophy from the University of Texas in 1936. Introduced to folk song and folklore in the family home, he went on his first collecting trip with his father in 1933, visiting the infamous Parchman State Farm at Canton, Mississippi. He also found opportunities to produce recordings by his favourite artists. Negro Sinful Songs performed by Leadbelly, the first commercial album of Afro-American folk songs, was followed by two influential releases on Victor: The Midnight Special: Songs of Texas Prisons and Guthrie's Dustbowl Ballads. Alan spent the remaining war years working for the Office of War Information and for the Special Services unit of the US Army.

Lomax and Collins had split up by this time, and she had returned to England, where two albums worth of material recorded by Lomax and Peter Kennedy before the Southern Journey had recently been released. Lomax was instead accompanied on the 1960 trip by his young daughter, Anna Lomax, who would later become president of the Association for Cultural Equity following her father's death in 1998.

Peter Douglas Kennedy (18 November 1922 – 10 June 2006) was an English collector of folk songs in the 1950s. Some of the titles in this series were re-issued on CD by Rounder in 2000. A curious, and frequently criticised feature of these albums is that songs are often presented by splicing together recordings of two or more singers. Kennedy also founded the record label Folktrax, issuing his own recordings on cassette, and later CD.

Lomax produced recordings, concerts, and radio shows in the US and in England, which played an important role in preserving folk music traditions in both countries, and helped start both the American and British folk revivals of the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s. For the Scottish, English, and Irish volumes, he worked with the BBC and folklorists Peter Douglas Kennedy, Scots poet Hamish Henderson, and with the Irish folklorist Séamus Ennis, recording among others, Margaret Barry and the songs in Irish of Elizabeth Cronin; Scots ballad singer Jeannie Robertson; and Harry Cox of Norfolk, England, and interviewing some of these performers at length about their. a skiffle group, Alan Lomax and the Ramblers (who included Ewan MacColl, Peggy Seeger, and Shirley Collins, among others), which appeared on British television.
