In 1938 Alan Lomax came from Washington, DC to record Michigan’s richly varied folk music traditions for the Library of Congress. This program celebrates the 75th anniversary of Lomax’s Michigan journey combining live performance with historic images, color movie footage, and recorded sound from the Great Depression. Singer Lee Murdock brings to life songs collected by Lomax and others, delighting audiences with a Michigan folksong legacy that evokes the rugged days of lumberjacks and wooden sailing schooners.
