The Western Catskills of New York State is a region with a rich cultural history as exemplified by the music, dancing and story telling of the area. The life and work of Grant Rogers along with other musicians from the early and mid-twentieth century exemplify this history, much of which is in danger of being lost. Two organizations, Music on the Delaware and The William B. Ogden Free Library, are sponsoring an effort to preserve this cultural history through interviews, music and photography. In addition, these organizations support activities and educational efforts that carry on the spirit of this cultural history. Examples of this are school and library music workshops. This web site will alert the public to these efforts and call attention to evolving traditions still alive that continue to enrich our community today.
