Recordings of the Great Gulf Coast Arts festival (Day Two)
Shape note singing
Piano music (Blues)
Seven reel to reels. Since the early 1970s, the Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival has been held each year in early November. (Only in 2004, with the damage caused by Hurricane Ivan, was the festival cancelled.) In 1980, the Florida Folklife Program offered a demonstration of the results of their West Florida Folklife Survey. Included were the Vietnamese Dancers of Pensacola (to pre-recorded music), Ida Goodson performing on the piano, shaped note singing, and Creek dancers.
