Sing Out!, the nonprofit organization and magazine that sprouted from the progressive folk scene in the early 1950s, seeks to "preserve and support the cultural diversity and heritage of all traditional and contemporary folk musics, and to encourage making folk music a part of our everyday lives." While the magazine requires a subscription, there is much on the website that may be accessed free of charge. After scouting the homepage, readers may like to check out the News, Reviews, & More tab, where they can access reviews of recently released folk and Americana albums, peruse columns and blogs, and participate in the discussion forums. The Folk Song Index, a collaborative project with Oberlin College Libraries, is another great feature on this site. Users can Search the database by Title, Composer, or First line of verse, or browse already compiled Anthologies, such as "Folk Songs and Ballads of Scotland."
