This chapter focuses on the influence of the Swedish minstrel Sven Scholander on the career and musical style of Richard Dyer-Bennet. It explains that Dyer-Bennet used an unexpected inheritance to track Scholander, who met for the first time in 1935. The chapter also highlights the fact that Scholander became the first solo performer of his kind to appear in Carnegie Hall, only nine after his meeting with Scholander, and also mentions that Dyer-Bennet’s performances acquainted his audiences with folk songs from both the American and English traditions long before they became fashionable.

Keywords:   Richard Dyer-Bennet, Sven Scholander, Swedish minstrel, folk songs, Carnegie Hall, solo performer
