New music series from Folkways


Early on in Adam’s blogging career he wrote about some of the marvellous recordings from Folkways at the Smithsonian in Washington DC. He praised a number of their other initiatives. On at least a couple of occasions Folkways/Smithsonian staff were kind enough to place comments on this blog.

Today Adam noted this new comment on one of his early posts. In order to give this the prominence it deserves he has given this comment a post of it’s own.

In addition to the 24-part CKUA “The Folkways Collection” series which you’ve praised a number of times, the Edmonton, Alberta, Canada public radio outlet launched a new series of 26 one-hour programs on January 18, 2009, entitled “Folkways: Sounds to Grow On,” hosted by Michael Asch, the only child of Folkways’ founder Moses Asch. The Sunday afternoon show airs 3-4 p.m. (Mountain Time) and can be heard online at Smithsonian Folkways will begin podcasting the series as soon as we have a hefty handful.

You may also want to tune in online to “Tapestry of the Times” on Saturday eves at 8.p.m. Eastern Time at Host Aaron Henkin has 23 episodes of streaming audio at as of this writing, exploring the national museum’s nonprofit recording archive.

Adam urges anyone who reads his blog and enjoys this kind of music, the collections being very varied indeed, to tune in.

He is pleased to assist in making the availability of this programming known to a wider audience.

    Dear Adam,

    What more could a fella ask than what you’ve already done? Thanks!

    All the best,
