Work in Progress: A history of Paredon Records
I'm researching the history of a label founded by Barbara Dane and Irwin Silber. From 1970 to 1985, Dane, Silber, and their collaborators released fifty albums that documented protest music from around the world. The roster of the label's musicians includes some of the most important politically-minded singers and songwriters: Mikis Theodorakis, Leon Rosselson, Pete Seeger, Pablo Milanes, Chris Iijima, Suni Paz, and many more. I'm also developing a web-based playlist generator which will allow you to search the collection through a number of themes and keywords.
