The Upstate History Alliance has awarded TAUNY their prestigious Award of Merit for our new website W is for the Woods: Traditional Adironack Music & Music Making . Website reviewers “applauded the projects accessibility and quality,” according to UHA Program Coordinator Stephanie Lehner.
The Upstate History Alliance is a non-profit service organization that provides support, advice, and training to historical societies, museums, historians, archivists, and other heritage organizations in New York State. This year the UHA received the largest-ever pool of nominations for the Award of Merit program.
TAUNY’s music website— www.adirondackmusic.org —explores the rich music-making traditions that have developed and evolved over the past few hundred years in the Adirondack woods. Diverse traditional Adirondack music and musicians are brought together in one place as a resource for scholars, performers, and the interested public. Historical sketches, interpretive essays, biographical sketches of musicians and collectors, and more than 100 songs and tunes recorded over the last 75 years with audio files and musical transcriptions are presented to the online audience.
The Adirondack music website was made possible by funding from the Glenn & Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation to start research and a significant grant from the New York State Music Fund for production; TAUNY contracted with Dave Ruch of Buffalo, a performer and historian of New York State traditional music, to be the project director for the creation of this site. Varick Chittenden, The TAUNY Center Project Director, who coordinated production of the website, will accept the award at UHA’s Museums in Conversation Conference on April 11, 2010.
