I. Field Recordings

The core mission of DrDosido.net has always been to share samples of  field recordings made during nearly a half-century of tune catching. For several decades, much of that recording activity was done as contract fieldwork. During that time I earned a PhD in Folklore and Ethnomusicology from Indiana University.

Herb, Janet & Mike Wenning

GL017 Herb Wenning & Family - Ten Pretty Girls

In my later working life, I programmed community music events for several folk schools. Besides a varied involvement with Adler House (aka David Adler Cultural Center) in Libertyville, Illinois, I spent over 3 decades at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music.

Juan Rivera & Felipe Valle-2008

HT213 Felipe Valle & Juan Rivera - Cielito Lindo

Early and late in my folklore career I independently concentrated on fiddlers. A huge portion of my collection of recordings is traditional and old-time fiddle music. Six web pages under the Recordings menu are devoted to fiddlers. Other folk musicians and ensembles are presented on the remaining pages. Many more recordings will be added to these in the coming months.
