Blues musician Buck Thompson playing at his home

Date
1985-01-20
Description
One audio cassette. Sound recording of fifty-year old blues guitarist Buck Thompson playing tunes that he learned from the radio at his home. A lifelong migrant farmer, he played the Florida juke circuit in the 1950s. Inebriated at the time of recording, Thompson speech is difficult to decipher at times. The tape cuts off several times at Thompson's request. Additional recordings of Thompson can be found in S 1714, box 6, reels 23-24. 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.
