45th Anniversary of the Senior Choir program

45th Anniversary of the Senior Choir program

Date
1985-01-12
Description
Four audio cassettes. Recording of the 45th anniversary program for the senior choir of the Gethsemane Missionary Baptist Church. The program consisted of traditional gospel and spiritual songs. A malfunctioning microphone caused some distortion and feedback on the recording. In Winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.

Description
One audio cassette recording. (Duplicate can be found on tape 5.) The first half of the tape was recorded at a House of God "Family and Friends Day Celebration" in Daytona Beach on 5 September 1993. The second half was recorded at the Ocala House of God Church #2 on 26 November 1993, and the then at the 1994 Florida Folk Festival on May 24 1994 (for entire festival performance, see D94-20 in S 1576.) On the second half, the vocals are weak. The Sacred Steel Guitar Recording Project originated in 1992 when Florida Folklife Program folklorist Robert Stone discovered that several predominantly African American House of God churches (a sub-sect of the Pentecostal church) in the St. Petersburg area were using steel guitars in their religious services. The practice began by Willie and Troman Eason in the 1930s, and expanded upon by players such as Henry Nelson and Lorenzo Harrison. Realizing that this was a unique musical tradition, labeled Sacred Steel, the Florida Folklife Program to applied for a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to conduct fieldwork and create a music album for public dispersal. The aim of the project was to increase public awareness of the gospel steel guitar tradition, as well as document it for future generations. Matched with state funds, the grant period originally ran from October 1993 through October 1994, but was extended for another year. In that time Stone, along with sound engineers William Dudley and Mike Stapleton, interviewed and recorded several steel guitarists in the St. Petersburg area. An album entitled Sacred Steel was released in 1995. It was then re-released through an agreement with Arhoolie Records in 1997.
