Complete track lists of some of these albums can be found on the Wisconsin Collections page. All recording artists and groups and all the session players listed on that page are indexed here alphabetically by name. Some of these artists have never lived in Wisconsin, and some are not acoustic Folk musicians.

    The above collections feature all, or mostly, Wisconsin musicians.
    Other collections with Wisconsin musicians are detailed on the following
    pages.  Many of the titles on these pages are on non-Wisconsin labels and
    have tracks by mostly non-Wisconsin musicians.
Wisconsin Harp Collections
Wisconsin Polka Collections
#B)  Index by Artist/Group  (top/bottom of page)
          Effective 10-28-2001, the artists appearing on Wisconsin Collections that used to be indexed here, have been moved to separate new alphabetical pages. This is in preparation for the future artist/group indexing of all Various Artists Collections with complete track lists in the FolkLib Index which I have created, and not just the Wisconsin Collections. NOTE: there will no beginning page for this particular set of pages. The page for each letter includes the following menu of links to every other page that indexes the collection appearances for every artist's last name or the group's name beginning with that letter.

| A - B - C - D - E - F - G - H - I - J - K - L - M - N |
| O - P - Q - R - S - T - U - V - W - X - Y - Z |

          Not right now (10-28-2001), but after I retire in a year or so, I will have time to start adding many more Various Artists Collections with complete track lists. They will all be indexed by artist/group name and completely cross-referenced to each artist/group's entry in the rest of the FolkLib Index.

          Various Artists Collections discographies planned for 2007 or later:
These discographies will include only those albums in my personal collection, which, except as noted, does not include every album that exists for that topic. This list includes only those titles I had as of 10-28-2001. Other than possibly deleting an item after the discography is created, I do not plan on spending any time updating the totals or other details about this list in the foreseeable future.
