About this item

In the 1940s, the Wisconsin Folk Music Recording Project, sponsored by the Library of Congress and the University of Wisconsin, took Helene Stratman-Thomas and other fieldworkers on a collecting expedition around Wisconsin to document a folk music that reflects the colourful pattern of immigration and occupational development in the state. This album presents a folk portrait of English language songs from the project, including historical ballads, dance tunes and several lumberjack songs.
