Description

Folklife Stories with John Fenn – This episode includes some surprising stories and a peek into the life of a folklorist.  Those stories range from a shootout in Texas to the work of preserving Native American language and cultural heritage materials.



John is the Head of Research & Programs at the American Folklife Center, part of the Library of Congress.  He’s married to a folklorist so his kids think that is what everyone does!



The song sample at about 8 minutes is “Coal Miner's Blues” from The ToneWay Project.  Learn more at
