Ildikó Kalapács and Wayne Kraft founded the Erdély Ensemble in Spokane, Washington, in 1988. The Ensemble has devoted itself to the task of studying and performing dances form regions of Hungary and Transylvania (Romania) where astoundingly rich folk traditions once flourished. Due to the pressures of urbanization and 20th century life--as well as the repression of the former Romanian dictatorship--, many of these folk traditions have vanished or are near vanishing. Some of the dances we are studying have been called back into life from film documents made some decades ago.

Washington, A Guide to the Evergreen State was first published in 1941 as our state’s contribution to the massive American Guide Series. The entire series included volumes on every one of the then 48 states as well as several cities and distinct locales. Conceived as a Federal New Deal project during the 1930s, the guides were part history, part cultural record and part travel maps. Over a period of almost a decade, thousands of writers, artists, photographers, mapmakers and professional wanderers traveled the country’s roadways in a remarkable eff†ort to “record the landscape of the American mind.”

Revisiting Washington: A Guide to the Evergreen State is a revisitation of the original Washington guidebook, complete with the historic content but updated with current field notations and digital navigational tools. Revisiting Washington also includes a rich collection of images and graphics of roadside Washington along with historic audio and video selections.
