Date
1985-08-28
Description
Three reel to reel tapes (also copied onto C86-140 and C86-57). A recording of Harry Kalikow with his wife, Lillian, on piano, performing vaudedille routines. Followed by an interview with both. Harry discussed learning vaudeville; getting started in the business; his career; examples of songs and jokes; and his move to Florida. Lillian discussed learning piano (by ear); playing for silent movies; and performing with Harry. Of Russian Jewish heritage, Harry Kalikow had been performing vaudeville since the age of 13. He moved to Miami in 1958 as a nightclub comedian. His act consisted of songs, jokes, and piano solos. The term vaudeville was an American word coined in the 1840s, and refers to a variety show comprised of a series of unconnected acts (singing, comedy, dancing, etc.) The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
