Folk Instrument Questionnaire: Keepers and Collectors
For this project, we're interested in the making, keeping, and use of folk instruments, and the stories that go along with these activities.

Please use this form to share information about any instruments you've kept in your family (or community) or collected. If you have more than one of these heirloom/family instruments, you're welcome to either fill out one form per instrument or group more than one instrument together in one form and answer questions more generally. If you have a whole instrument collection, please use this form and answer for the whole collection as well as possible. If you don't know the answers to many of these questions, that's fine! Please just share whatever information you're able to. Don't hesitate to contact Camilla Ammirati, lead researcher for this project, at camilla@tauny.org or 315-386-4289 with any questions. Further information about this project can also be found at www.tauny.org.
