Description
Two DAT tapes. This was the third visit by folklorist Stone; recorded at Groth's residence. Consists of a rehearsal (tape 14) and an interview with Groth (tape 14 and 15). The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2004.
