Terms & Conditions

Your purchase of these recordings will give financial support to a continuation of this series and provide funds to the immediate families of the musicians. Encouraging friends to purchase rather than copy these recordings will ensure these goals. These recordings aim to honor the wishes of older musicians to share their tunes and styles with younger musicians and, in so doing, keep traditional music alive and flourishing. Recordings for sale and information about the musicians and collectors can be found in our store on this web site.
