Interview with blues singer Marie Buggs

Date
1984-09-13
Description
Two audio cassettes. Born in Deer Park, Florida, in a turpentine camp in 1918, Buggs learned blues from her uncle Blind Blake and blues records. She discusses learning the blues; life at a turpentine camp; juke joints; jokes from the time; various blues singers: W.C. Handy, Blind Blake, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Billie Holiday, and Bessie Smith; blues clubs in Jacksonville; performing in New York City and across Europe; meaning of the blues; various blues styles; reactions to the blues across the world; and performers she met. She also sings several blues songs throughout the interview. A second interview held a couple of months can be found on C86-182. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, and in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
