Description
One audio cassette. Recording of well-known fiddler Fred Perry playing his repertoire of old fiddle tunes. He is joined by Doug and Frank Trivette. Perry has played in the St. Johns region for over fifty years, including with bluegrass great Ralph Stanley. Also on the tape is Fred's wife Ruby. For images of the performance, see slides S85-1496 - S85-1498 in S 1577, V. 27. In winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
