German National Radio Deutschlandfunk Kultur Features Jim Leary’s Work

Folklore Works, Folklorists in the News

On February 19, German’s national radio Deutschlandfunk Kultur ran a 55-minute program largely focused on Jim Leary’s work with the folk/vernacular/roots music of German-speaking (Austrian, German, Swiss) immigrants to the US. Though the article and the radio program are both in German, excerpts of Leary’s comments can be heard in English here and there. Visit the article to read more about his work and to listen to some great music!
