Now celebrating its 12th year online
Welcome to the sounds of American music!
This site is operated through the resource library of the Center for American Music Preservation (CAMP)
and contains information
about historical American music in need of preservation.
No attempt is made to cover all genres of American music since it is too vast an area to cover everything.
The focus is on vocal music and covers over 300 years.
There is a need to preserve this music from earlier America. Will you help in this effort by sharing this link?
