American Folk Music – Website

We are in the process of updating our website including our American subject guide links.  So far I have discovered many interesting and fun sites online which cover an amazing range of topics.  One of the most fun I’ve found so far is Smithsonian Folkways which offers a window into American music and recordings.  There is an online radio station which you can listen to, several podcasts which serve as guides to the collection (I personally enjoy listening to ‘Tapestry of the Times’).  In addition there are several lesson plans available for teachers and of course an online catalogue where you can purchase songs or albums.  

I highly recommend looking into this fascinating and unique online resource.
