Smithsonian Folkways Trivia!
Each month we'll ask a trivia question; email your answer, name, and address with the subject "December Trivia" to smithsonianfolkways@si.edu by December 31st and a randomly selected entrant with the correct answer will win a free CD of his or her choice!

December Question: In 1963, Folkways Records released an album of the story of Jesus Christ’s birth. Who wrote this version of the story, and what was his relationship to Folkways?

Congratulations to last month's winner, Mahir from Australia who correctly answered "Joanne Shenandoah" to this question: This Grammy-winning Iroquois singer/guitarist has won more Native American Music awards (11) than any other artist and appears on two Smithsonian Folkways albums—Beautiful Beyond: Christian Songs in Native Languages and Heartbeat: Voices of First Nations Women.
