Thread Name: Songbooks: Book of lesser known trad. songs?
Subject: RE: Book of lesser known trad. songs?
The Library of Congress has a huge collection of traditional music, comparable to the wonderful collections at Cecil Sharp House. You can sit and browse for months. Lots of university libraries have the work of local collectors. We came across a small college just west of Roanoke, Virginia that had music collected from local source singers/musicians, we just saw it mentioned in the tourist guide in a motel.
