In the 1980s, Mark Greenberg interviewed and recorded old-time, grassroots Vermont musicians and produced both a video documentary, The Unbroken Circle (1985), and a CD anthology, Kitchen Tunks and Parlor Songs (2003). In this presentation, he discusses collecting oral histories in Vermont and examines how earlier music survived in the twentieth century and how it was affected by social and technological developments.
