Subject: RE: PermaThread: Free On-Line Trad Folk Performances
Thanks for the link to the Gloucester site Tradsinger . It looks very interesting. There must be more sites which have good recordings which can be heard online. If anyone knows of any please tell us and post links here. The following link to

The Library of Congress catalogue

is a promising starting point for further investigation https://www.loc.gov/audio/?all=true&c=50&fa=original-format:collection%7Cpartof:catalog%7Csubject:folk+songs,+english It is mostly ‘ Catalog Record Only’ entries but there are some recordings which can accessed to listen to if you search hard enough ,for example The Banks of the Sweet Dundee https://www.loc.gov/item/afcnye000052/ Perhaps someone with the time and interest could search through the many collections mentioned and give us links to those which offer worthwhile recordings which we can listen to online? This link might also be interesting to some; Library of Congress catalogue collections with Audio Recordings https://www.loc.gov/audio/collections/?st=gallery
