Peter Johnson donates collection of concert recordings to the Howard T. Glasser Archives of Folk Music and Letter Arts

Peter Johnson produced musical concert and coffee house venues for many talented and upcoming folk musicians in Cambridge, Massachusetts during the 1970s. He and his recording engineer Mike Coughlin, visited the archives on Monday, May 17 with Howard T Glasser. Their purpose was to deliver a collection of 88 concert tapes and a selection of 10 recordings of Cape Breton fiddle music for inclusion in the Howard T. Glasser Archives of Folk Music and Letter Arts. Artists on the Johnson tapes include Mike Moloney, Margaret Barry, Boys of the Lough, Mike Allen, Betsy Rutherford, Norman Kennedy, Archie Fisher, Sean Tyrrell, and Jean Redpath. The recordings will be preserved in the archives and when transferred to digital, open for research and listening pleasure.

    Just wanted to alert you to what I think may be a few typos in this post: Should probably be “Mick Moloney,” “Boys of the Lough,” and “Séan Tyrrell.”

    Thanks. I edited it. I based my spelling on the varying ways names are spelled on labels on the tapes. When I catalogue the collection, I will certainly check for correct spellings on everything!
