folkwaysAlive! is a local hub for exploring and celebrating the world of sound. We honour the legacy of Folkways Records and its commitment to conserving "anything that is sound" through research, musical performance and community activities.
folkwaysAlive! is home to a collection of over 2,100 Folkways records donated to the university by company founder, Moses Asch. Our centre—located in the historic Arts building at the University of Alberta—provides a network for musicians, historians, researchers, academics and a diverse community of music lovers.
In addition to hosting on-site tours and curating multidisciplinary projects, folkwaysAlive! houses an online digital archive of Folkways recordings, provides research opportunities, and presents public performances that relate to and enhance the legacy of the Moses and Frances Asch Collection of Folkways Records.
