Alan Lomax and Cultural Equity

In the 1960's and 1970's Alan Lomax and his team traveled around the United States to discover and record American Culture. His You Tube Channel is full of beautiful examples of  traditional songs, early blues and rock, and a variety of church services.  Many of this was done for a PBS production and you could spend hours just enjoying the footage they have published on you tube. It is part of the Cultural Equity project which can be found at Culturalequity.org.
