I’ve Rambled This Country Both Early & Late: A Celebration of Kentucky Mountain Music
In the fall of 1937, pioneering folklorist Alan Lomax traveled throughout the mountains of East Kentucky, documenting the region's traditional music. Two months later he returned to the Library of Congress with over 32 hours of recordings. As part of the repatriation of these artifacts, the Clifton Center joins with the Association for Cultural Equity to present to celebrate the music and culture Lomax discovered.
