Interview with blues singer Marie Buggs

Interview with blues singer Marie Buggs

Date
1984-11-08
Description
One audio cassette. Born in Deer Park, Florida, in a turpentine camp in 1918, Buggs learned blues from her uncle Blind Blake and blues records. Much of this interview is a repeat of an earlier one (see C86-180/181), also by David Taylor. Here in addition to her early life and career, Buggs discusses her father's work turpentining and bootlegging; fellow blues performers; learning drums and playing at clubs and strip joints; teaching strippers to dance; performing with Josephine Baker; risqué songs; working with comedians like Nipsy Russell and Red Foxx; minstrel shows; Jacksonville blues clubs; and audiences in Europe. Again, she sings many songs from her repertoire. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. 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, and in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
