Michael S historical fiction about folk singers? (23) RE: historical fiction about folk singers? 16 May 11

The Big Ballad Jamboree, by Donald Davidson, described here. The author taught literature at Vanderbilt. While he died in 1968, the book was not published until 1996. People who knew of the book presumed the manuscript was lost, but eventually it was discovered among his papers. Not the greatest novel, but it can be warm and funny, and it deals a lot with the tension between staying true to rural, folk-song roots or becoming a star. Definitely responsive to the request.
