History of Roots Knotty Roots

RKR book page 1    RKR book page 2

Someday I intend to write a short history of this project. For now I wish to acknowledge our many contributors.

The main contributor was the late Bob Schoenfeld, who began this project with me almost 25 years ago. Bob was an untiring music enthusiast and his research permeates RKR. Since his passing in 2006, RKR has more than tripled its content, in part thanks to the many collectors who continue to send information. Unfortunately many names have been lost over time, but I would like to thank the following:
