Ethnomusicologist, Alan Lomax, spent much of his life recording folk songs in America, Europe and the West Indies. This show examines how he used sound technology to preserve and share the music of the working classes and repressed minorities. It features music by Lomax, Leadbelly, Memphis Slim, Woody Guthrie, Brian Eno, the United Sacred Harp Convention and more. With thanks to James Janco for production.
