Folkways at Concordia

Concordia has acquired 246 recordings from the Smithsonian Folkways collection. You can browse the list in this RefWorks RefShare library or search Clues for "smithsonian folkways."
We've talked about this collection, which was tied with Moe Asch and is now managed by Anthony Seeger at the Smithsonian Institute. As an "independent label," Folkways has had a very significant impact on the way diverse musics have been perceived in the U.S. and elsewhere.
As mentioned in class, there has been a podcast series on the Smithsonian Folkways collection.
