The Folkways Collection

This series of 24 one-hour programs explores the remarkable collection of music, spoken word, and sound recordings that make up Folkways Records (now at the Smithsonian, as Smithsonian Folkways Recordings). The music of modern day giants like Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Ani Difranco is interwoven with original Folkways recordings to demonstrate the lasting legacy that Folkways Records has on popular music. Recent and archival interviews with Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, Mickey Hart, Studs Terkel and others to help reveal the remarkable human stories behind this equally remarkable collection.
