      This page lists Music Reference Books which include "Folk", "Celtic" or "World Folk" in their title, or whose primary focus is Folk, Celtic Music or World Folk. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list of every book ever published about these genres of music. It is just a list of similar books from all the books I own "{A}" or have personally referenced in local Wisconsin libraries.
      New pages split off from my original Bibliography page
