Bob and Evelyn Beers performing at the Florida Folk Festival

Date
1962
Description
Twenty-three black and white prints. Images of the Beers Family Singers (Bob, Evelyn, and Martha Beers) at various Florida Folk Festivals. Popular on the folk circuit in the 1960s, the Beers were sent in 1968 by the U.S. Dept. of State on a tour on India, and once played for the White House in 1969. In 1966, they also began the popular Fox Hollow Festival in upstate New York. In 1972, Bob Beers died in a car crash. His daughter still performs as Martha Nagler, and Evelyn continued performing at Florida Folk Festivals well into the 1970s. In addition to music, Evelyn would often perform puppet shows at the festivals. The files also contain substantial correspondence and promotional materials for the Beers.
