What We've Lost

I saw this video and I thought it was good. It just reminds me of the times when railroad workers sang as they straightened the rails. Now they pop their earbuds in and mope around all day. What happened?
The player is Uncle John Scruggs, an American banjo player born into a slave family. This is his only known recording.  It is from 1928. I just love this video and the joy on everyone's faces. Makes me wish I was there... I hope we can keep this tradition alive in America.
