In the time period when these recordings were made, it was rare to be able to bring a professional recording engineer into the field with high quality recording equipment to record traditional musicians. But this was exactly what was done. $48,250 has been raised; $23,299 remains to be raised for a total budget of $71,549. We are asking for your help.

Donors of $250 or more will have their name(s) listed in the accompanying booklet that will be issued and distributed by Smithsonian Folkways Recordings electronically and receive this music on a signed, limited edition CD.
