This website is both an archive of traditional songs and culture and portraits of their Tradition Bearers and their families.
The website has two overlapping aspects:
1. An ever-growing archive containing the songs, stories, and knowledge of the Tradition Bearers that have contributed. Most recordings are downloadable and free to share with the understanding that the copyright of the performance theirin remains the property of the Tradition Bearers themselves. The sharing of their repertoires to the wider world should always be honoured with their name and an acknowledgement of their generosity in sharing it
2. Information about being an active part of the Song Collectors Collective, how to gain the skills to become a confident song collector, resource material to help your research, policy on good practice and safe collecting techniques to protect both contributors and collectors
