America Changed Through Music: Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music at 60

I'm currently co-organising a one day event to mark the 60th anniversary of Harry Smith's ridiculously seminal Anthology of American Folk Music. The deadline for paper submissions has just ended and we're very excited about the programme of speakers and subjects that's coming together. Above, you can see the original conference artwork by the genius artist and animator Drew Christie. And on the day, we're going to have some free musical performances by modern musicians breathing new life into some of the songs from the Anthology. To find out more please visit the conference website, September 15th, UEA London - make sure to save the date!
