Article: Boundless: Artists in the Archives has its first recorded songs!

Brilliant!  I’m thrilled when I can see an overlap of my profession (libraries, archives & technology), with my personal interest (music!).  I want to copy this program out of the University of Tennessee Knoxville for our work here at my Library!  

Also, if Count This Penny is cool enough to do this, I’ll have to check them out as well...

"Amanda and Allen Rigell (aka Count This Penny) composed two songs inspired by materials in the Wilma Dykeman and James R. Stokely Jr. Papers, which are preserved by and housed in the UT Libraries’ Special Collections department.


Watch the video below as we follow Amanda and Allen through the archives and into the recording studio throughout the production of these songs.

To continue the Boundless: Artists in the Archives series, the UT Libraries will periodically commission a work of art or music inspired by the unique items in our Special Collections and our Betsey B. Creekmore Archives."
