Folk Songs

I Hear America Singing.  I cannot emphasize how much we love this book and CD.  The CD sat in our car’s player for about 4 years without being rotated!   Classic American folk songs appropriate for kids, but performed at a high level and enjoyable for adults.

If you really want to dig into American folk, the best resource is Smithsonian Folkways.
