The blues has enjoyed a rich and varied tradition in Florida. Folklorists, such as Zora Neale Hurston, Alan Lomax and Stetson Kennedy, documented Florida blues music from the late 1920s through the early 1940s. Blues musicians received widespread attention during the 1960s blues and folk music revival, and in 1978, the North Florida Folklife Project began to document performances.
