The Anthology of American Folk Music is a six-album compilation released in 1952 by Folkways Records (catalogue FP 251, FP 252, and FP 253), comprising eighty-four American folk, blues and country music recordings that were originally issued from 1927 to 1932. Experimental film maker Harry Smith compiled the music from his personal collection of 78 rpm records. The album is famous due to its role as a touchstone for the American folk music revival in the 1950s and 1960s

American folk music is considered to be a group which includes a wide range of music genres. The most notable kinds in this group are country, blues, gospel, bluegrass, and similar others. All these categories of music have primarily been started or developed in the USA, hence the term 'American folk music'. Some musicologists think that this music can also be referred to as 'roots music'. It was the American folk music which later gave way to rock, R&B, jazz, and other prominent types.
