Interview with Lee Whyms and Ken Rahming of the Key West Junkanoo Band

Date
1977-01-28
Description
One audio cassette. Whyms played the saw with a butter knife, and Rahming was a conga drum player. Interviews on side 1, recorded music on side 2. Whyms describes how he learned how to play the saw from Blackshirt, an old man from Key West; when the band was formed; how Marion Stevens discovered the band in an alley in Key West; how he plays the fine tooth crosscut saw. Rahming describes how he played the "coon-hide" drum (which was heated by fire to tune) when he first learned to play the drums at age sixteen; how his father came to Key West for the sponging industry; when he came home at night; how the Nassau-like parades began in Key West; how he visited Nassau and bought Calypso records, influencing his style of Calypso music to reflect Cuban and Bahamian characteristics; how he learned the limbo from Bill Butler; how Calypso is usually only played by men.  On side 2 they play examples of Calypso recordings, not included here due to copyright restrictions.

One reel to reel recording. NOTE: Due to technical problems with the original reels the recording quality of the 1971 Florida Folk Festival is exceptionally poor. Boltin served as emcee. (The last five tracks of the reel -- not listed here -- are from the Friday afternoon program. See separate entry for description.) The first few tracks may have been from the previous day's program (Thursday, 6 May, 1971). The reel indexes are unclear. The Schillings were from Cosby, Tennessee. Jean played dulcimer. The Orange Blossom Bluegrass were from Tampa. Nelson lived in Gainesville. Pavitt lived in Juneau, Alaska. The Good Guys were based out of West Palm Beach. Fiddler Stephens lived in Panama City. Starker played the steel drums.
