AAFC Mission

 

The initial project of the Archive of Alabama Folk Culture is to digitize the performance recordings of the Alabama Folklife Festival, held from 1989-1993, and the Alabama Sampler Stage at the City Stages festival held in Birmingham from 1991-2002. These performances represent the rich variety of sacred and popular music originating in Alabama. Audio clips of many of these performances will soon be available on the Alabama Department of Archives and History website.
