Florida Folk Festival History Workshop at the 1992 Florida Folk Festival (Crossroads Stage - Festival History)

Florida Folk Festival History Workshop at the 1992 Florida Folk Festival (Crossroads Stage - Festival History)

Date
1992-05-23
Description
Three audio cassette recordings. C92-8: Dale Crider talks about Project Wild and sings "To Be Wild"; talks about Will McLean. Merri McKenzie interviews Jay and Peggy Smith, Bill and Jean Hewitt and Dr. Russel Reaver about the early days of the Florida Folk Festival and even about the time before it. C92-9: Jay and Peggy Smith, Bill and Jean Hewitt, and Dr. Russell Reaver continue talking about the early days of the Festival. Dr. Reaver particularly remembers Uncle Mose Miles as the first storyteller, and the others discuss folk tales such as "Hunting the Chrismas Baby" and "Skeleton in the Tree"; remembering their favorite acts; discussing storytelling traditions. C92-10: Jay and Peggy Smith and Dr. Reaver continue discussing folktales and their role in culture. When the Smith's leave, Dr. Russel tells a story: "Henry and the Pole-Vaulting Fish". Because this was the 40th festival, the Crossroads area was partly devoted to performers who contributed to the festival's past and development.

One reel to reel recording. Boltin served as emcee. Smith and Gavin were boat drivers at Wakulla Springs. Boat tours have been given at the springs on since the late 1800s. Many of the 1980s drivers were descendents of those early drivers, and provide some of the same folk tales. The springs was developed as a tourist attraction in the 1930s (and became a Florida state park in 1987.) Images of the drivers can be found in S 1577, v. 7. The Makley Family were from Jacksonville. Older was a fiddler from Lake Hamilton. Wind That Shakes the Barley band were from Tampa. Schuman, of Gainesville, played the autoharp (chorded zither).
