Hey you DC-area folks, this sounds interesting:
Benjamin A. Botkin Folklife Lecture Series, American Folklife Center, Library of Congress
"Chorus and Verse: The Challenges of Designing the Roud Folk Song Index," presented by Steve Roud.
April 14, 2011, 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm
Mary Pickford Theater, 3rd Floor, James Madison Building
"Steve Roud will discuss his work compiling The Folk Song Index, an online index to all the traditional folksongs of the English-speaking world."
Those not able to make it might be interested in the Botkin Lecture Series Online Archives, which "includes descriptions of each lecture and informational essays from the event flyers. Links to webcasts of lectures are included as available."
I hope there will be a webcast for this one. I was alerted by the AFC via Facebook. If you do Facebook, that's a nice one to have.
