Saturday performances at the 1996 Florida Folk Festival (Main Stage) (Tape 5)

Date
1996-05-25
Description
One digital audio tape (DAT). Williams served as emcee. The first three songs the Versiteers played (not listed here) were not recorded due to equipment failure. Mortham was Secretary of State at the time; the Florida Folklife Program and festival fell under her jurisdiction. She officially recognized McLean as a Florida Artist. This was followed by a McLean tribute, including stories and performances by Southwind, Fitchen, Frank & Ann Thomas, Kennedy, Todd, and Williams. Singer-songwriter Will McLean was often called the 'Father of Florida Folk.' The Black Hat Troubadour, a nickname for the hat he usually wore, authored over 3500 songs, and was a national figure on the folk music scene. A fifth generation Floridian, he died in 1990, the year after he won the Florida Folk Heritage award. Grooms played with Dennis Devine (guitar), Waye Martin (fiddle), Dan Peterson (bass) among others.
