“Singing for Racial Justice” Weeks: August 16-31
Our focus on racial and social justice continued during the final two weeks of August with guest hosts, discussions with guest artists, and an in-depth conversation on racial justice, led by Dr. Kathy Bullock of Berea College in Kentucky.
“Archive Challenge Week”: September 13-19, 2020
In partnership with the Library of Congress American Folklife Center (AFC), artists from around the world presented their interpretations of songs from the Library’s collections of field recordings. These “daily antitdotes,” hosted by Jennifer Cutting and Steve Winick, were based on a similar program presented at the Folk Alliance International conference at which an array of different folk musicians learn material from AFC’s archive and perform it in a special showcase.
