  • Happy 108th Birthday Moses Asch!

    Monday, December 2, 2013, would have been the 108th birthday of Folkways Records founder Moses “Moe” Asch (1905–1986). Folkways Records issued 2,168 albums in 39 years (an amazing average of one per week!).

    Celebrate a quarter century of Smithsonian Folkways and listen to this year-by-year playlist – one song each from 1988 to 2013 – from the collection of more than 3,000 albums (and growing!).
