Has anybody been listening to "The Folkways Collection" podcast? If not, I truly reccomend it. It comes in 1 hour intervals and there have been 22 of them thus far. I think that there will be a total of 24. It's a great history of all aspects of Folkways records. It has great interviews with John Cohen, Tony Seeger, Moe Asche, Michael Asche (Moe's son), Pete Seeger, Dave Van Ronk, Mickey Hart, Peggy Seeger, and probably other's too. It also features great music from the Folkways collection. Best of all, it's free!

Yep, it says

"To subscribe to the series, copy and paste the URL of this RSS feed into your podcasting program.

Or download each episode as an MP3 file directly to your computer."

Click on the "(Download this episode)" after each episode's description.

Just listened to #1 brilliant. I believe the whistling tune is from Pete Seegers Goofing Off Suite and is just called ' theme '.
Thanks for the Smith. Inst. link.

You'd probably be better off asking your parents if they could subscribe you, or find a friend with a high-speed connection and listen to the stream for free as Johnhenry'shammer does.

Joe - you could download them, but on dial up it'll probably take a while. The 22 there now range in size from 50-56Mb, mostly 50/51.

Mick Pearce send me a CD of the Folkways Collection podcasts almost two years ago, since I couldn't download the collection very easily on my dialup connection. I listended to some of it, and I really enjoyed it. Now that I have a car with an MP3 player, I used Mick's CD to play the podcasts in the car, where I don't have all the usal household distractions. I'm really enjoying this series, now that I can listen to it undisturbed.
Hey, and these downloads are free, so click and download with wild abandon!

Well, I can't find the "Folkways Collection Podcasts" any more, so maybe they're no longer available. HOWEVER, there's a new series you can download, Sound Sessions - musical biographies of various Folkways performers.

I've just had this month's Folkways newsletter with info on new releases which might be of interest:

New Release: Classic Protest Songs from Smithsonian Folkways

Classic Protest Songs from Smithsonian Folkways, a bold collection of songs from the 1940s, '50s, and '60s that pays homage to movements of conscience and voices of dissent, is now available on CD and Digital Download. Classic Protest Songs, the 17th compilation from the popular Classic Series, features music from Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, Janis Ian, Big Bill Broonzy, Pete Seeger, Barbara Dane, Guy Carawan, Phil Ochs, two Bob Dylan covers, and a previously unreleased track from 1946 by Champion Jack Dupree titled "I'm Going to Write the Governor of Georgia."

Free Download and Memorial Gathering to Honor John Cephas Piedmont blues legend John Cephas passed away March 4th at the age of 78. Smithsonian Folkways was fortunate enough to record and release John Cephas and his longtime partner Phil Wiggins on Richmond Blues last year.

Family, friends, musical colleagues, and admirers of John Cephas will gather at the National Museum of Natural History's Baird Auditorium in Washington, D.C., at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 29th. Please click here for more information.


New Releases for April
On April 21st, Smithsonian Folkways will release Pete Seeger: American Favorite Ballads Vols. 1-5 (Box Set). Stay tuned for more information about this box set, and join us in wishing Pete a happy 90th birthday on May 3rd!

Also on April 21st, Smithsonian Folkways will release Son de Mi Tierra, a vibrant new son jarocho album from the forward-looking group Son de Madera from Veracruz, Mexico.



some very tempting stuff there!

You can pre-order American Favorite Ballads Vol 1-5 at Amazon for a mere $39.95 - or you can jump the gun and buy them individually at a significantly higher price, which I did over the past few years. These are absolutely wonderful recordings of stuff you didn't know Pete recorded.

There's a biography of Pete Seeger which has a discography at the back. Looking through that, I decided that at one time or another Seeger has recorded every song ever written.

And, of course, Amazon orders can be placed via the Mudcat link and make the Mudcat filthy rich.

Well, when I say "filthy rich" ...
