Still searching for that elusive recording of folk dance music that just doesn’t seem to be available anywhere??? Why not let the good folks at the Little Shop of Horas in Melrose lend you helping hand. They’re experts and would love to make your search a success!
They boast the largest collection of traditional dance music recordings in the entire New England area. In addition, they have quite a comprehensive inventory of recordings of other genres of folk music as well. If your looking for kids music, you can find it here as well. While browsing their online catalog, I found their prices to be quite reasonable. Not only do they carry a wide selection of cds, cassettes and even, believe it or not at this stage, lps, but also DVDs, video cassettes, books, and sheet music as well. They even have a selection of T-shirts and such so that you can proudly share your love of folk arts with the rest of the world.
The shop’s staff is always ready to tell you what’s new, recommended, or on sale with respect to their inventory. More ever, you can conveniently make your purchases in a number of ways. The store is located at the Folk Arts Center of New England. Their hours and phone number are the same as those of the office. You can also take advantage of their online order form which coincides with the catalog. In addition, they appear at various folk events in the area, so keep an eye out for them when attending performances.
An aspect of the Folk Arts Center of New England that I am particularly enthused about is their genuine and whole hearted support of world culture from a promotional standpoint. All of the profits from the operation of Little Shop of Horas go towards the successful accomplishment of this mission. As a matter of fact, they are currently selling a children’s songbook/cd set entitled Qu Qu Qu Barg-e-Chinaar: Children’s Songs from Afghanistan. Proceeds from all sales of this item will go to the Afghan Children’s Songbook Project in support of a revival of native juvenile folk music in the home country, as well as within the communities of its citizens and their ancesters living abroad. You can also make a direct donation to the shop’s overall global cause if you choose. So, why not take some time out to indulge yourself at this intriguing little music shop, either in person or online, and make a contribution to world culture, while enjoying the exposure to some really great world music and dance!
