Celebrate Black History Month with SFC Streaming Radio

In celebration of Black History Month, we’ve added a new channel to the Southern Folklife Collection Streaming Radio project:

Channel 6: Southern Folklife Collection – African-American Music

While there are many examples of the African-American music of the South streaming on our other channels, this is the only stream that focuses solely on black musicians, with an emphasis on the string bands of the ’20s and ’30s, plus gospel quartets, country blues, jug band music, sacred steel guitar, the folk songs of the civil rights movement, and more.

Tune in all this February for a unique musical celebration of Black History Month, and happy listening!

The purpose of the Southern Folklife Collection Streaming Radio project is to make our holdings available to the general public for educational use. Links work best with iTunes, Winamp, or VLC media players.
