Summary
"Available here for the first time is the remarkably diverse folk music of America's Upper Midwest, captured in field recordings by collectors for the Library of Congress from 1937 to 1946. This landmark multimedia work challenges and considerably broadens popular and scholarly understanding of folk music in American culture. Although Eastern, Southern, and Western musical traditions are familiar to fans of American roots music, the restored images and performances of Folksongs of Another America weave the songs and spirit of the Upper Midwest's peoples into the nation's folksong fabric. - 187 songs and tunes, digitally restored - Songs in more than 25 languages, with full original lyrics and English translations - More than 200 performers, with biographical notes and many photographs"--Publisher description
