"This presentation–illustrated with sounds, still images, and film–focuses on field recordings of Finnish folksongs made for the Library of Congress from 1937-1940 in the Lake Superior region. Ranging from militant labor anthems to bawdy songs, these recordings contribute significantly to our understanding of folksongs in North America.
Speaker: James Leary, University of Wisconsin-Madison"
