Interview with guitar maker Manuel Fraguela

Description
One audio cassette. Fraguela was a guitar maker (luthier) from Cuba. By the time of the interview, Fraguela owned a guitar shop and taught classical guitar at Florida Junior College (now Florida Community College of Jacksonville). In the interview, he discusses life in Cuba; moving to the US in 1962; education in Havana (studied architecture); learning the luthier trade by observation; describes his first guitar; types of guitars he made: flaminco, classical guitar, and electric guitars; other woodwork: chess boards, violins, dulcimers, cabinets; history of the guitar; teaching guitar playing; and his philosophy of teaching. NOTE: According the original interview release, Fraguela stressed the interview could only be used for educational/academic purposes. 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.

Folklife Subject: Sacred Steel

Florida Folklife Collection
Description
Since the 1930s, the sounds of steel guitar have been heard in an unlikely place, far removed from Nashville or the Hawaiian islands. Musicians in the Pentecostal House of God church use the steel guitar instead of the often-heard organ or piano to lead their lively, music-driven worship services. The very human, voice-like qualities of lap and pedal steel guitars are perfectly suited to underscore a spirited sermon or lead an ecstatic choir in praise. In 1992, while serving as State Folklorist, Bob Stone unearthed what became known as Sacred Steel music in South Florida.
