Ben Gray Lumpkin Digital Folk Music Collection

For two decades, Ben Gray Lumpkin travelled around the state of Colorado collecting folk songs. Lumpkin was a professor of English at the University of Colorado, and over this time period he recorded approximately 2000 performances by 192 individuals. This delightful digital collection created by the University of Colorado at Boulder Libraries offers curious visitors a sampling of these performances. Visitors can browse the collection by song title or performer name. Additionally, visitors can perform detailed searches across the entire collection. There are a number of real gems here, including performances of "Babes in the Woods", "Hand Me Down My Walkin' Cane", and "Farmer's Boy". The site is rounded out by a brief biography of Professor Lumpkin which talks about how he came to work on this particular project.
