Thread Name: Who are the experts on Appalachian songs
Subject: Who are the experts on Appalachian songs
Suppose you made a field recording of a 75-year old geezer, who sang versions of Appalachian old songs you couldn't find in any of your books or records or on the internet. Is there some place you could send your field recording, where a panel of experts would evaluate the geezer's songs? If there is no such panel, to whom would you send your field recording?
