         Folk Music Archives - - it  is not the archiving of one song, single folk singer or group. It is the the anthology of  all, with interviews of each. Those who are the past, present and future of this rich  American heritage.

 Through  Folk Music Archives  every generation will be able to listen to these folk singers - - in their own words -  -  those who shaped and preserved the folk tradition. 

As a repository of Folk Music Archives  interviews,  The Library of Congress American Folklife Center  ensures that archival research, recordings and  interviews are properly utilized and protects  all intellectual property and copyrights.

 

Frank Shane of Folk Music Archives is interviewing, documenting and archiving their individual and  collective stories. frankshane@folkmusicarchives.org  

 Like  Pete Seeger's banjo - -  these stories ring out  crisp and clear  - -  honest and true. 

                             Book cover is from Pete Seeger's book, "How to play the 5-string Banjo"   1960 Pete Seeger
