Jean Ritchie concert at the Stephen Foster Center

Jean Ritchie concert at the Stephen Foster Center

Date
1976-12-05
Description
One reel to reel recording. Images from the concert can be found in S 1576, volume 1: slides S77-78 through S77-95. Ritchie was born in Viper, Kentucky to a family that preserved and sang many old time (mountain) songs -- many dating back to England and Scotland -- numbering by Ritchie's count to well over 300. Raised within the Appalachian-based musical tradition, Ritchie graduated from the University of Kentucky in 1946, after which she moved to New York City as a social worker. While there, she became involved in the emerging folk revival scene, performing the old family songs on her dulcimer and autoharp. She recorded for the newly-created Electra Records, starting in 1952. By the 1960s, she was a well-respected and sought after performer and authority of Appalachian music. By 1976, she and her husband, photographer George Pickow, started their own label, Greenhays Records. Many of the songs performed here appear on their first self-released album: None But One. For other Ritchie recordings, see reels T78-312 through T78-314; T79-1.

Description
Three reel to reels. Johnny Shines was a blues singer-guitarist who once traveled with famed blues singer Robert Johnson. He was re-discovered in the 1960s during the folk revival boom, and played festivals throughout the 1960s and 1970s. His sound was very similar to Robert Johnson's, and here he played several Johnson songs. Bluegrass and Kentucky mountain music singer Phyllis Boyens (who later appeared in the film Cola Miner's Daughter as Loretta Lynn's mother) and Nimrod Workman (who also had a bit part in the same film) released the album Passing Through the Garden in 1976, and they were promoting that album at this performance. Workman was a former coal miner and union organizer in Kentucky. Bessie Jones, born in inland Georgia, promoted Georgia Sea Island songs, and later in the 1960s formed the Georgia Sea Island Singers. She died in Brunswick Georgia in 1984. The Red Clay Ramblers was a part of the "New-Grass" movement of the 1970s, forming in 1972. The Chapel Hill, North Carolina-based group featured Tommy Thompson (1937-2003) (banjo), Jim Watson (guitar/mandolin), Jack Herrick (guitar), Mike Craver (piano), and Bill Hicks (fiddle). Conway was a scholar at Appalachian State University and filmmaker of Appalachian culture, and an associate of the Red Clay Ramblers. She introduced Shines and the Red Clay Ramblers at the concert.

Doc and Merle Watson Concert with Chubby Anthony and Big Timber Bluegrass

Doc and Merle Watson Concert with Chubby Anthony and Big Timber Bluegrass

Date
1977-04-30
Description
Two reel to reels. Recording of a free concert at the Stephen Foster Center, and sponsored by the Florida Folklife Program. Anthony and Big Timber opened for the Watsons, and later joined them for the finale. Doc Watson was discovered by folklorist Ralph Rinzler in 1960 while recording old-time musician Clarence Ashley in North Carolina. Blind since early childhood, Watson had been playing the guitar for much of his adult life when Rinzler found him. Eagerly accepted by the folk revival boom of the 1960s, he soon began recording best-selling albums and playing folk festivals. His son, Merle, joined him by the mid-1960s. They played old time, country, and bluegrass songs. Known primarily for his flat picking on the acoustic guitar, by the 1970s, Watson and son were highly sought after performers. When Donald "Chubby" Anthony died in Gainesville in 1980, he was considered one of the best bluegrass fiddlers in the nation. Born in Wellborn, South Carolina, Anthony began his career as a teen playing for the bluegrass group, the Stanley Brothers. He moved with them to Florida in 1958 to Live Oak. <br />
