The Traditional Music Collection is a listing of audio recordings, music books, and videos with information on how to contact artists or their representatives. The Collection represents a wide variety of approaches to tradition. Some artists were born and raised within the culture or community that the tradition represents and some came to be involved with traditional music in other ways.
Many traditional musicians in New Hampshire produce recordings of their music. Because these recordings are not always available in commercial music stores, we have put together a resource to help you find them.
