Founded by impresarios George Wein, producer of the Newport Jazz Festival, and Albert Grossman, the Newport Folk Festival began as a showcase for the mostly young, urban musicians who were spearheading the emerging commercial Folk Revival. At the top of the list was the collegiate Kingston Trio, whose hearty version of the traditional North Carolina ballad, “Tom Dooley,” had scaled the pop charts the year before.

Joining them were more established “folk singers,” including Pete Seeger. As a member of the Weavers, Seeger had also experienced pop success when that group's adaptation of Lead Belly's “Irene Good Night” became the hottest song on the 1950 Hit Parade. But the Weavers had been derailed by the blacklist, and the folk music revival that they were on the verge of spearheading had sputtered. Now, in the late 1950s it seemed that folk music, as a commercial product, was back.
