This audio recording is part of the Dyann Arthur and Rick Arthur collection of MusicBox Project materials at the Library of Congress. In January 2010 Dyann Arthur, independent folklorist, musicologist and Berklee College of Music alumni, founded MusicBox Project, a non-profit corporation in the state of Washington, whose mission it is to document and preserve our musical history while advancing music education and occupational avenues of creation and performance. Beginning in 2009, Dyann and Rick Arthur travelled through America meeting and interviewing women musicians of all ages and career levels. “Americana Women” was conceived as a three-pronged research approach: 1) an oral history interview; 2) an acoustic performance at the time and place of the interview; 3) a public performance.
This sound recording is free to use and reuse. You can copy, modify, distribute and perform the work, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission. The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress asks that artists approach the materials in this collection with respect for the culture and sensibilities of the people whose lives, ideas, and creativity are documented here. Attribution is recommended but not required.
Dyann and Rick Arthur, the original copyright holders of the MusicBox Project, relinquished all ownership and copyright of the collection to The American Folklife Center at The Library of Congress in 2010. With this gift, the Library also received copies of the release forms from the performers. Furthermore, Citizen DJ only includes those recordings that contain performances of songs that are in the public domain due to copyright expiration.
