Thread Name: FSGW getaway workshop: song collectors
Subject: FSGW Getaway Workshop on Folksong Collectors
This workshop will begin with a presentation on the Flanders Ballad Collection--Helen Hartness Flanders (on tape) explaining the historical context of her work, excerpts of field recordings and other amusing and personal memories from someone who knew her.

What happens thereafter depends on who comes! So who are you? Sandy and Caroline and .......

It would be fun to hear about (and from) other well-known and lesser-known collectors. How is collecting done? How does one credit the source? What do you do with your collection? Hopefully we will hear both dialogue and song and everyone will have a chance to do a little collecting on the spot.

Looking forward.... Nancy-Jean
