The Lomax Folk Project led by Amanda Ekery is a quintet of young scholars and performers of folk material collected by John & Alan Lomax is touring this year to celebrate the 150th birthday of John Lomax. You'll recognize some of their songs from the work of Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Pete Seeger, and the soundtrack from O Brother, Where Art Thou? - and some will be new or unfamiliar. Stephen Winick of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress will give a short presentation about John & Alan Lomax and their enduring influence, and FSGW will be selling a new CD of unreleased recordings by John Lomax Jr. compiled by John Lomax III. $20, members $10.
