One audio cassette. Recording of a performance of an informal country, gospel, and bluegrass group in a home. Musicians included: Willa Mae Clemmons (guitar), Cecil Griffey (guitar), and Lovelace Glisson (banjo). For images, see S 1577, v. 27, slides 1938-1954. 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.
