Hi, I'm Diane Karl from the morning "folk-strip".
I'd like to let you know about the MusicBox Project, a non-profit organization seeking to document American roots music. The directors are Dyann & Rick Arthur from Mill Creek WA. As part of their effort they have their own channel on YouTube: www.youtube.com/musicboxproject
Right now you can watch a well-done short film entitled "Americana Women:Roots Musicians - Women's Tales & Tunes" with oral histories and performances of female performers in many areas of roots music.
