Desert Dancer Folk-Legacy acquired by Smithsonian-Folkways (12) Folk-Legacy acquired by Smithsonian-Folk 31 Jul 19


Via Smithsonian-Folkways Recordings on Facebook:

We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of Folk-Legacy Records, major players in the flourishing 60s folk revival.

As musicians themselves, Folk-Legacy’s founders sought out “people’s music”: passed from generation to generation within a community, as a means of connection, entertainment, honest expression of personal values, and a source of solace and resilience through social and political struggles. These 140+ albums range widely in traditions, from gospel and hymns of Appalachia and the Ozarks to sea shanties of the British Isles; from dance tunes of New Brunswick to Southwestern American folktales, story-songs, and children’s music.

To celebrate Folk-Legacy becoming a part of our label family, today we're releasing "A Living Tradition: Selections from Folk-Legacy Records," with iconic songs by old-time banjo player Frank Proffitt, singer-songwriter Gordon Bok, folk revivalist Hedy West, and more.

Great news. I’m typing by thumbs, but definitely this needs to be on the site.
