One audio recording. Simpson primarily discusses the tools he uses to make instruments. He learned to make instruments (primarily violins and guitars) under a Serbian in Chicago when he was 15.

Florida Folklife Collection
Description
Thirty-five color slides. Tsimouris making a tsabouna, a Greek bag pipe made out of sheep's skin. More images of Tsimouris at the festival can be found in folder 6, S 1672, box 1. The festival was held June 24-25, 1989 to celebrate Tarpon Springs heritage of sponge diving, a practice that dated back to the 1890s. By 1905, when 500 Greek immigrants answered an ad to be sponge divers, the town acquired a distinctive Greek flavor, as the Greek Americans thrived in the sponge industry. At one point, Florida provided 95% of the nation's sponges. Although today over fishing and synthetic materials have undercut the sponge diving industry, the tradition lives on in Greek families, and through tourism.
