FolkLib Index - Letter V indexing project

(last updated .12-12-2017)
      This page is a bibliographical index of musical terms that are defined in various Music Reference Books, as well as music festivals, instruments, magazines, etc., but not musicians. Recording and performing artists and groups are indexed on this site's "Musician's Birthdays/Bibliography" pages, and Record Labels are indexed on the "Historical Record Label Addresses" pages. This page also includes some song titles that had a special entry in the noted book. These entries give background details about the compostion or subject of the song or its composer and almost always do not include any musical notation or complete lyrics.

      ,rc1238 = refers to the book code (e.g. #rc) and the page number(s) where the term can be found.
      "Letters Indexed" = links to a list of letters in this book for which every entry for a letter has been indexed on this site.
