Songs to Keep: Treasures of an Adirondack Folk Collector


In the 1940s – ’60s, Marjorie Lansing Porter tirelessly recorded folk songs that were on the brink of disappearing throughout New York’s Adirondack Mountains. Now, contemporary musicians honor her collection by re-recording these traditional tunes. Their efforts invite you to uncover the legacy of Adirondack miners, loggers, and other folks who lived a hundred years ago, and created a treasure chest of Songs to Keep.
