a panel @ the chicago humanities festival, old town school of folk music.
George M. Eberhart interviewed Nathan Salzburg and me for American Libraries magazine: “The Legacy of Alan Lomax.” We’ll be at the Old Town School of Folk Music on Wednesday, 4 November 2015, 7:30 pm, for the Chicago Humanities Festival event Citizen Folklorist: Alan Lomax’s Musical Journeys.
As a college intern, I worked for Alan, helping to transfer his massive audio archive to DAT (Digital Audio Tape, remember those?), so it is an honor to get to participate in this special event with these talented folks. We will investigate Lomax’s legacy as a folk music media activist and, of course, sing a little bit. Hope to see you there.
