Thread Name: eMusic article re Smithsonian Folkways
Subject: eMusic article re Smithsonian Folkways
I just came across some interesting comments on the eMusic blog site 17 dots. This is an article about the fact that Smithsonian Folkways hasn't stayed relevant in terms of preserving and promoting roots music, and a cry for SF or others to continue this type of activity.

I added a comment to that site about Musical Traditions, which does promote this type of music. I thought this might be of interest to some people here, and you might have lots of current sources to recommend as well.
