85 years ago, Vermonter Flanders was a force in documenting ancient European ballads and folk songs still to be found in the hills of New England. Pete’s great great aunt was one of her many informants with an archaic version of “Two Sisters.” Pete, an adjunct instructor at Middlebury College where the collection is housed, will discuss it and teach several lively examples.
