Folkways at 75: Jake Blount, No-No Boy, Early Abstractions
Two artists uniting the traditional and the futuristic come together on one bill to celebrate 75 years of Folkways Records.
Jake Blount and No-No Boy are two of Smithsonian Folkways’ rising stars, representing the next generation of songwriters and tradition bearers. Between performers will be a screening of the short film Early Abstractions by Harry Smith, the polymath and compiler of the Anthology of American Folk Music. Seventy-five years after its founding, the ethos of Folkways continues to resonate.
