Folklife Genre: Bluegrass & Old-Time

Date
Description
Old-time string band and bluegrass music has deep roots in Florida with fiddle players, such as Cush Holston and Richard Seaman. Old-time is based on the centuries-old dance music and songs of people of Anglo-Celtic descent. Bluegrass takes its name from Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys, a Kentucky band that combined elements of old-time, big band, blues and other influences to create a new, high energy musical style in the 1940s.

Performance by the Salt Run Bluegrass Band

Date

Description
One video recording (VHS; 36 minutes). Introduced by folklorist Gregory Hansen, Salt Run performed for students in the auditorium at an unidentified elementary school. In between the songs, they discussed the history of bluegrass music, as well as of their instruments (fiddle, guitar, banjo, dobro, stand-up bass, and mandolin). At the end, they fielded questions from the students. 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.
