This summer, Out There Atlanta presents Summer Sound Series, a collection of interviews with artists who find inspiration in sound or directly use it in their works.

Episode 74:  Art Rosenbaum is a painter, educator, folk music performer and collector, and long-term radio host of Backroads and Banjos on AM1690: The Voice of the Arts. In this podcast, Art talks about several of his past projects, including Folk Visions and Voices, Shout Because You’re Free, Howard Finster: Man of Many Voices, and The Art of Field Recording.

Topics include: Going to the Met with his mom as a child, developing an early love of folk music and bluegrass, visiting Howard Finster, and what spurred him to record and interview musicians.

The cover Art of Field Recording: Volume I: 50 Years of Traditional American Music, Documented by Art Rosenbaum. Art of Field Recording Volume I is a four disc set with a 96 page book that contains essays and annotations by Art and over 100 illustrations and photographs by Art and his wife Margo. Art took a similar approach to Harry Smith in assembling the music: The discs are divided into Blues, Instrumental and Dance, Sacred, and a Survey disc that has a little bit of everything.
