Henry Edward Krehbiel (1854–1923) was an American music critic and musicologist. He received a general education from his father, a German clergyman of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and started in 1872 the study of law. In June, 1874, he was employed as musical critic at the “Cincinnati Gazette” as musical critic, a post which he held until November, 1880. Later on, he became musical editor of the New York Tribune and grew out to be an influential music critic.

His study of Afro-American folk-songs in 1914 was one of the earliest examinations of this music.
