Sharing Bluegrass: The Steam Powered Preservation Society

I’ve had the good fortune recently to get involved with a project that is all about sharing music. The Steam Powered Preservation Society is a not-for-profit organization creating digital archives of historical and contemporary Americana recordings. From a vast tape collection and the submissions of partner-bands, a patchwork picture has emerged of the evolution of traditional string band sounds in the last half-century, and it’s all available for free - you can download or listen on their streaming radio player (great for work!). I’m happy to be involved both on the tape restoration side at Masterdisk and through the performances of the M Shanghai String Band. Look for news on this site as my archival transfers and MSSB live recordings are released for download in the future.
