Drawing on decades of research, folklorists Jim Leary and Richard March have distilled a definitive presentation of Upper Midwestern traditional and ethnic music, from Ojibwa drums to Norwegian fiddles, from polka to salsa, from gospel choirs to southeast Asian rock bands. The book Down Home Dairyland: A Listener’s Guide provides a wonderful overview of Wisconsin’s musical heritage through forty essays, fifty-seven photographs, plus a rich discography and bibliography.
Both the cassette and the music CD sets provide samplings from the Down Home Dairyland series of forty half-hour radio programs on Wisconsin Public Radio. These audio collections include interviews with traditional musicians, sample sound recordings, and discussion of the patterns of musical styles in the region.
This set of 20 music CDs with 40 half hour programs in two binders may be purchased separately to accompany the book. (Book ISBN: 1-924119-15-2)
