SUMMARY

The 1979 Neptune Plaza Concert Series Collection consists of manuscript and print materials, audio recordings, and graphic materials that document the 1979 concert series sponsored by the American Folklife Center. The annual series, which began in 1977, features the presentation of folk traditions from many cultures. The concerts take place on the Neptune Plaza at the front of the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress between April and September. The 1979 series was produced with the assistance of the National Council for the Traditional Arts.

The 1979 season consisted of the following:

April 27 Don Stover, MD (Country)*
May 31 Eugene O'Donnell and Mick Moloney, PA (Irish)
June 28 Hazel Dickens and Don Stover, DC (Country)
August 30 Melecio Martinez, IL (Mexican)
