The Digital Tradition is a data base containing the words and music to thousands of folk songs. These songs have been collected over the last eleven years by Dick Greenhaus and friends. Originally distributed as a free PC DOS program with full text search and audio playback, the Digital Tradition is now also as plain ASCII text (e.g. for UNIX systems), and most recently via a World-Wide Web Internet server and in CD-ROM format. It has been—and hopefully will again be soon-- available for Macintosh computers; we’re currently encountering incompatabilities between our MAC version and Apple’s newer operating systems.
