Finding Aids to Official Records of the Smithsonian Institution Archives
Smithsonian Institution. Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage
Website Records, 2010-2013
This accession consists of a blog and a website maintained by Smithsonian/Folkways Recordings as they existed on August 4, 2013.
The Smithsonian Folkways Tumblr account highlighted recordings from its collections, often tied to anniversaries or special events. The first post to the blog was in March 2010. In January 2012, a post noted that the account would no longer be updated.
The "Performed Words" website allows the public to listen to recorded, living performances and hear the performer's voices speaking and singing with their own tone, rhythm and nuance. Due to technical issues, this accession only includes the non-Flash version of the website.
Materials are in electronic format.
