A notable year in the history of Jamaican music was 1907, when Walter Jekyll's Jamaican Song and Story was first published. The Contents of this book include four parts entitled "Anancy Stories", "Digging Sings", "Ring Tunes", and "Dancing Tunes". Each part has an introduction, songs, stories, and melodies. Includes 51 items, such as the story and melody "Leah and Tiger" (item 36, pages 108–9)

The Jamaican Folk Singers, informed MacDonald Nevers, uses its repertoire of more than 200 songs - all of which are arranged by Dr Lewin - for its performances. These songs exude positive values. Too many of us look down on the country. Our objective always has been to show the beauty and worth of Jamaica," the singer said. She added that at times folk music is taken as loosely packed amalgamation, which is not the case. She informed that the Jamaican Folk Singers is planning to conduct music-in-education workshops next year. It has already done a performance in which music was used to teach various subjects. MacDonald Nevers is upbeat and excited on the prospects of folk music being relevant, alive and reaching out. "JCDC (Jamaica Cultural Development Commission) has done wonders in reviving folk singing and folk form, and I am seeing a lot more youngsters wanting to learn," she said.

The Jamaican Folk Singers are a Jamaican ensemble dedicated to traditional Jamaican songs. The group was founded by Dr. Olive Lewin in March 1967, originally a group of eight friends with an interest in Jamaican folk songs. The group were invited to play at the funeral of Count Ossie in 1976. By 2012 the group had expanded to 28 members. The group's current musical director is Christine MacDonald-Nevers, whose mother, the soprano Marilyn Brice-MacDonald, is one of the longest serving members.
