About the Project:
In 2003-2004 Louisiana Tech University's Center for Rural Developed
worked with Dr. Susan Roach, the Regional Folklorist, and Michael
Rasbury, an assistant professor of theater and professional musician,
to digitize a small portion of Dr. Roach's extensive collection of field tapes
from North Central and Northeast Louisiana. This project was funded by
a USDA-CSREES Special Research Grant.
The intent of this website is to increase the accessibility of the
Louisiana Tech Regional Folklore Collection to the public for education
and research purposes. These recordings are present on this site
solely for educational use, and may not be distributed or sold without
permission from Louisiana Tech
You'll need Real Player to listen to the audio recordings.
