At the heart of Ballad of America is traditional American folk music. The early settlers in the New World played and sang a variety of songs from their native homelands as they worked, prayed, and enjoyed leisure activities. By the time of the American Revolution, they were adapting these songs and creating new ones that reflected their ever-changing circumstances and environment.

Ballad of America explores the songs, music, and instruments of the colonists, pioneers, sailors, lumberjacks, immigrants, '49ers, farmers, mountianeers, slaves, soldiers, cowboys, railroaders, and activists for social justice. It features fiddle tunes, folksongs, Old World ballads, work songs, spirituals, love songs, shanties, reels, play parties, breakdowns, blues, and more.
