Presentation set on historic Monroe record label

Print Article

MONROE - Jim Leary, UW-Madison emeritus professor of folklore and Scandinavian studies, will present "Alpine Dreaming: The Helvetia Records Story" at 7 p.m. on Tuesday at Turner Hall, 1217 17th Ave., Monroe.

The Monroe Helvetia record label issued only 36 titles featuring Swiss yodelers, instrumental and vocal groups from Swiss communities in Wisconsin, New Jersey and Ohio. Leary tracked down and researched the original recordings of the entire Helvetia catalog. All 36 titles were remastered released on a 2-CD set last August. The set's accompanying 60-page booklet, written by Leary, recently earned him a Grammy nomination in the program notes category.

A free-will donation will be accepted for Turner Hall's Swiss Heritage Series. The public is welcome.
