CHS' first Kickstarter Project: Building a Home for the Rounder Records Collection

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

James O'Brien, PhD, will talk about the Cambridge Historical Society's first Kickstarter campaign and how social media was used to raise funding to process our Rounder Records collection. He will provide information about the collection, its value to researchers, and how we plan to make it available to the public. Betsy Siggins, founder of the New England Folk Music Archives, will also bring us up to date on their recent activities. The talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session, refreshments, and a performance by the Whiskey Boys. All are welcome.
 
This event is co-sponsored by the New England Folk Music Archives.
