Thank you, Folkways

the 2 episodes I was interested in where the Folkways Collections and the story of John Cohen's music. They were both so good, and reminded me of my place in the music.

One story I remember about the modern 'old-timey' musicians happened in, oh, 1980 or '81.... Took place at the Great Hudson River Revival in Croton, NY.
Musicians stayed in tents in the old field up the hill past the garbage dump. Get the old time musician together and they'd begin to play.. and play and play.
This particular year the old time folks forgot to stop playing when the girl's bathroom caught fire. They were right in front of the building. Newer noticed the fire, never noticed the firetruck. They were in their own trance with the music...
Of course they did have to move.... but I'll never forget them just playing in their own world till ours crashed in on them.


I only bought the Hip Hop one, as of now, and I was blown away. The episode takes you all over the world to hear what different people have to say. I was a fan of Hip Hop before, but I'm an even bigger fan now. Thank you Smithsonian.

Absolutely Fabulous

The Accordian Kings' episode is a 10-star adventure into the phenomenal music making and culture of a genre of Columbian traditional music told in a hypnotizing hour of adventure. You feel as if you are discovering this magical artistic practice as the producers must have in putting this excellent episode together. Watching this will make your day!
