New England Folk Music Archives
The New England Folk Music Archives preserves, promotes and documents the ongoing cultural legacy of folk music and its connections to New England through education, collaboration and entertainment.
Based on collections from the 1960's era folk revival stretching to the present the establishing collections include photographs, recordings, and memorabilia from The Club 47, the Cambridge MA folk music community, The Newport Folk Festival, and The Old Vienna Kaffeehaus.
Touchable Stories welcomes Betsy Siggins and folklorist Millie Rahn as directors of this project. Over the coming months The New England Folk Music Archives will be establishing a dynamic web presence and presenting public events to engage audiences and scholars in the rich world that is folk music in New England.
