Library of Congress National Recording Registry Seeking Nominations

I Want You to VoteEach year since 2002 the National Recording Preservation Board (NRPB) and members of the public have nominated recordings to the National Registry. The breadth of nominations received highlights the richness of the nation's audio legacy and underscores the importance of assuring the long-term preservation of that legacy for future generations. Bluegrass music and related music (e.g., Charlie Poole) have a place in the registry. The Bluegrass music community is invited to contribute their suggestions for the National Recording Registry.
