The Mickey Hart Collection: 10 Free Downloads
The Mickey Hart Collection, a 25-album series from Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and non-profit label Smithsonian Folkways, is now available for purchase. 10 songs can be downloaded for free from folkways.si.edu and mickeyhart.net. The collection includes music from virtually every corner of the globe and has been made digitally available for the first time by Smithsonian Folkways. The Mickey Hart Collection is drawn from The World, a series Hart curated that incorporates his solo projects, other artists’ productions, and re-releases of out-of-print titles. Six of the 25 albums form the Endangered Music Project, a collaboration between Mickey Hart and the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, which presents recordings from musical traditions at risk.
