At the Kennedy Center with John Cohen and Jerron "Blindboy" Paxton

"Treasures From the Archive Roadshow" at the Kennedy Center
                    with the Down Hill Strugglers, John Cohen and Jerron "Blindboy" Paxton

We've had a great Summer of touring, lots of great shows including appearances at the Newport Folk Festival, Vancouver Folk Festival, Great Lakes Folk Festival, three appearances at the Library of Congress!! and a great show at the Kennedy Center.

At Newport and at the Kennedy Center we were presenting the "Treasures From the Archive Roadshow" playing music that we have learned from the collections at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. It's a great show and has been a real pleasure working with the fine folks at the AFC to bring music from their collections live to audiences around the country, including a wonderful show at the Library itself. The complete 1 hour program we did at the Kennedy Center was filmed very nicely, and here it is available for viewing, just click the image above.
