Hi folks! 

Looks like I'll have a new DVD featuring 12 interviews from our Traditional Music Community in time for Christmas.

This one - Volume 6 - contains: 

- 5 Conversations with Music Historians/authors (Country, Folk, Bluegrass, French-Canadian) as well the performer/author that updated the history books on Traditional American Dance
- 3 Conversations with more banjo building folks
- 2 Conversations with guitar builders
- 1 Conversation with a performer, teacher and publisher of Traditional Music
- 1 Conversation with the one-and-only Archivist at Smithsonian Folkways

Lots of great stories and learnings, here.

Follow this link for short (2-4 minute) teaser videos of all the interviewees - 

Follow this link for more information on Volume 6 and "how to order" info - 

Next year's Volume for this series (Old-time Conversations) is going to be equally as diverse and encompassing.  Our Traditional Music Community is nothing short of astonishing!  I find the stories of those at the heart of it absolutely fascinating.  I hope you do too!  

Thanks for your interest.

Yay!  So happy to see Wayne Erbsen and Phil Jamison on this volume.  Been thinking about Phil lately, since Dare to Be Square - West is happening here in Portland this weekend.  Phil was the original inspiration for this event and the featured square dance calling teacher at the first D2BS-W event here in Portland many moons ago.  Looking forward to getting acquainted with the other folk on this volume.

Thanks for all you do, Craig.  Order placed.  :-)

Count me in. These are just fantastic interviews. The whole series.

Thank you Craig, for these.

It’s in the mail, Geoff. I just hope it doesn’t take as long as your Romero.

But I can tell you, like your Romero, it’s worth waiting for! ??
