Jerry and the Singing Goffs performing at the Bostwick Baptist Church

Date
1985-01-31
Description
Two audio cassettes. Performing at the Bostwick Baptist Church. Gospel songwriter, singer, and musician Jerry Goff was born in Greenwood, SC, and today is often called "Mr. Gospel Trumpet." He worked in television in the 1960s, including with the Gospel Singing Caravan. In the 1970s and 1980s, he traveled across the South with his band, the Singing Goffs, with whom he released several albums. They represenetd the USA at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. In 2002, he was inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Association. 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.

Master of the Sacred Steel album

Master of the Sacred Steel album

Date
1994-10-13
Description
One audio cassette recording. Master version of the Sacred Steel album, which was released in 1995 by the Florida Folklife Program. The album is divided into two sections: side 1 is instrumentals and concerts; side 2 are church services. For more information on musicians, recording locations, and production credits, see accompanying booklet, which can be found in S 2044, box 1, folder 22. The Sacred Steel Guitar Recording Project originated in 1992 when Florida Folklife Program folklorist Robert Stone discovered that several predominantly African American House of God churches (a sub-sect of the Pentecostal church) in the St. Petersburg area were using steel guitars in their religious services. The practice began by Willie and Troman Eason in the 1930s, and expanded upon by players such as Henry Nelson and Lorenzo Harrison. Realizing that this was a unique musical tradition, labeled Sacred Steel, the Florida Folklife Program to applied for a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to conduct fieldwork and create a music album for public dispersal. The aim of the project was to increase public awareness of the gospel steel guitar tradition, as well as document it for future generations. Matched with state funds, the grant period originally ran from October 1993 through October 1994, but was extended for another year. In that time Stone, along with sound engineers William Dudley and Mike Stapleton, interviewed and recorded several steel guitarists in the St. Petersburg area. An album entitled Sacred Steel was released in 1995. It was then re-released through an agreement with Arhoolie Records in 1997.
