A Review of "The History of Folk Music"
by Taylor Gallman
Initially looking at the webpage, the colors and use of visuals (pictures, videos, etc.) draws my attention in, which makes me more interested in what I am about to read. The wording for the definition of folk music could be clearer, but you are still able to understand what folk music is. Explaining what instruments were used and what each instrument was/ including a picture of it was a very smart idea. If they have never heard it before, it gives the reader a sense of what folk music sounds like. I like how she emphasizes the origin of folk music, and mentions how slaves used the songs they sang as messages between one another. . Overall, I enjoyed this post on folk music and at the end of reading it know more about folk music than I did when I first opened the post.
