Bright and early this morning, the Clara Thomas Archives & Special Collections' latest online exhibit was featured on CBC's Metro Morning. Host Matt Galloway interviewed the founder of the Mariposa Folk Festival and promoted our online exhibit of historical programs, images and sound recordings.
Monday 5 July 2010 is the official launch of the online exhibit Mariposa : celebrating Canadian folk music, funded in part through the Archival Community Digitization Program of the Ministry of Heritage. To mark the 50th anniversary of the festival, the archives digitized twenty years of festival programs, promotional material, photographs and historical festival recordings from the 1970s.
