About this product
- DescriptionStories from the Anne Grimes Collection of American Folk Music is a treasury of American traditional music and Ohio\u2019s folklife heritage. Traveling along the highways and byways of Ohio in the 1950s as a folksinger and collector of traditional music, Anne Grimes encountered people from many different backgrounds who opened up their homes to her to share their most precious family heirlooms-their songs. She recorded these treasures for posterity and further preserved them through her lectures and recitals. After years of performance and research on her material, Anne Grimes decided to write about it all. This beautiful book presents her lively portraits of the major contributors with photographs taken by her husband, James W. Grimes; lyrics and extensive tes on the songs; and a CD sampler that includes performances by her contributors, most of whom had t been previously recorded. It also contains selections from Bob Gibson, Carl Sandburg, Pete Seeger, Jenny Wells Vincent, as well as Grimes herself. The Anne Grimes Collection is preserved in the Library of Congress.
