Fieldwork: Jayme Stone with The Lomax Project Residency

When: Sat., March 28, 8 p.m. 2015

Beginning in 1934, with cumbersome—and now quaintly primitive—recording equipment loaded in the back of his car, the young Alan Lomax (1915-2002) traveled down the dusty byways and backwaters of the United States to source and record the roots and branches of American folk music for the Archive of American Folk Song at the Library of Congress. Initially, working with his folklorist father, John Lomax, and later with numerous other colleagues and guides, he captured for posterity an incredibly deep and staggeringly diverse musical portrait of life across the American and Caribbean landscape.

Price: $19-25
