Pete Seeger Concert

Date
1977-05-21
Description
Two reel to reels. Recording of a free concert at the Stephen Foster Center, and sponsored by the Florida Folklife Program, by famed folk singer Pete Seeger. Born in 1919 in New York City, Seeger began collecting folk songs in the 1930s. After a stint at Harvard where he was studying journalism, he worked with Alan Lomax as an archivist with the Library of Congress's folklife collection. Befriended by singer Woody Guthrie, they soon formed the Almanac Singers in 1940. Later in the 1940s, he formed the Weavers, whose biggest hit was the Seeger-penned song, Good Night Irene. Seeger spent his career writing and promoting folk songs, working for labor unions, marching for civil rights and environmental causes, and recording dozens of albums. In 1977 at White Springs, he sang a mix of his own and others' folk songs, including Woody Guthrie and Florida's songwriter Will McLean (who was present in the audience.)

Description
Twenty color slides. A former construction worker, Rudd built wicker furniture from cypress. Originally the cypress was local, but as development increased, he began acquiring the wood areas north of him.

It was conducted between 1986 and 1987 by folklorist Jan Rosenberg with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The goal was to impart an appreciation of multi-ethnic traditions and provide a sense of place to the mobile student population. The project focused on the Florida Studies component for fourth grade students. 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, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. In total, the project involved 15 schools with 779 students.
