Thread Name: Greatest protest singer of the sixties
Subject: RE: Greatest protest singer of the sixties
I believe the most talented and poetically prolific songwriter of protest songs of the 1960s was Bob Dylan (apologies to Phil Ochs's memory). Joan Baez was the best performer of Dylan's material. But my favorite political composer/performer of the '60s would be Pete Seeger. He's the main reason I took up banjo.
