Field recording compilation for the National Federation of Music Clubs

Field recording compilation for the National Federation of Music Clubs

Second part of one reel-to-reel tape. Psenka performs traditional Czech music accompaniment for a beseda, the Czech national folk dance. Psenka and the dancers were from Masaryktown. Tomazin (concertina), from Samsula, is accompanied by a young Yugoslavian student on steel guitar. Griffis, from Fargo, Ga., tells a tall tale. Swails (fiddle), from Branford, Whitehead, from Sarasota, and Fowler, from Live Oak, demonstrate straw-beating by hitting straws against the fiddle strings. Weldon (vocals), from Gainesville, is accompanied by Moore, from Denver, Col., on autoharp. Moon (Celtic harp, vocals) was from Gainesville. Paul Woodard (musical saw) and his wife, Elsie (piano), were from Bushnell. McDaniel, from Live Oak, performs with two harmonica, playing one with his nose. Pavitt, from Sarasota, performs an original composition about Hurricane Donna (1960). The Southern Railway Extra Gang No. 4 is led by foreman Simpson, and consists of railway workers Clark, Roberts, Goodwin, Jackson and Oliver; this field recording was made in 1958 near the rail station in White Springs.

These recordings, originally made by Boltin and sent to archivist Annabel Morris Buchanan of the National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC) in 1962, were copied by the Florida Folklife Program from a 7-inch reel-to-reel in the American Folklife Center, Library of Congress, numbered AFS 14,006.
Suwannee River Jamboree radio program

Suwannee River Jamboree radio program

One reel to reel. Recorded during a rebroadcast of the Suwannee River Jamboree radio show (c. 1958-1962) in 1984. Between 1952 and 1962, the Suwannee River Jamboree show -- broadcast from Live Oak, Florida on WNER -- was Florida's largest and best known country music show. It was broadcast live three hours every Saturday night, with 30-minute versions syndicated across the Southeast. The show featured many North Florida and Southeast acts such as the Stanley Brothers (who appeared on the show between 1958 and 1962.) This undated program was rebroadcast as a way to advertise the 1984 Suwannee River Jamboree homecoming concert, held at the Stephen Foster State Folk Culture Center. The concert was held in September 1984 as a homecoming for the original radio series, and included several local bluegrass bands. A similar jamboree was held the following year.
