Oral traditions, songs, language and melodies were the focus of Alan Lomax's relentless mission to record, understand and wonder at, the folklore and creativity of the people of the World.

At this event, we will present previously unseen footage recorded for Lomax's TV mini- series 'American Patchwork' in the 1980's, compiled by Nathan Salsburg from the Alan Lomax Archive, who has travelled all the way from Louisville, Kentucky to be with us.  

Join us in celebrating Lomax's legacy and in traversing the length and breadth of America to uncover the hidden reverse of American folk culture and lore.

Following the screening we will enjoy an informal chat / Q&A session with Nathan.
