Introduction:
The Twelfth Annual Ralph Rinzler Memorial Concert in 2006 was a tribute to Joseph T. Wilson, Executive Director of the National Council for Traditional Arts from 1976-2004 and a long-time collaborator of Ralph's and the Folklife Festival's. The concert spotlighted Joe's retirement project, "The Crooked Road", Virginia's Heritage Music Trail, officially designated by the Virginia General Assembly in 2004 to promote 250 miles of highways and backroads that meander through Southwestern Virginia from the Piedmont Plateau to the coalfields of the Cumberland Mountains.

Joe, writing in the guide to The Crooked Road, explained that "Virginia is one of the places where America invented its music. ... This music is the old fiddle and banjo sounds which have roots in Northern Europe, West Africa and colonial America." And, he continued, this "music from early America, treasured by musical families and small communities, is keeping to small places and instruction close to the hearth." The Crooked Road project was a careful attempt to share this regional music without destroying it. Joe and his colleagues in this effort were confident that the tradition was strong and its artists hearty. In local parlance, "taking the crooked road" also means playing an older fiddle tune, too difficult for an ensemble to tackle because it doesn't always follow a single line and offers a few too many unexpected twists. This sums up this individualistic region, its music, and one of its sons, Joe Wilson.

The 2006 Festival also featured a series of special concerts, Been in the Storm So Long, presenting the music of New Orleans. The spirit and sound of New Orleans music, in all of its forms, are heard and felt around the globe. Even today's urban hip hop has given birth to a local rhythmic version called "bounce." New Orleans has remained among the most important and influential music centers in the world. Its laid-back lifestyle, family traditions, close community ties, Creole humor, amazing cuisine, and unique view of life promised to ensure that the communal flame and rhythms that run from Congo Square through jazz, gospel, rhythm & blues, the Mardi Gras Indians, funk, and brass bands would continue to sustain its traditions while giving birth to new and exciting music forever.

However, the arrival of Hurricane Katrina of August 29, 2005, dealt a devastating blow to New Orleans - one that has threatened the city's physical, social, cultural, and economic future. More than 1500 Louisianans perished and hundreds were injured. Many homes, businesses, and buildings were destroyed or severely damaged. At the time of the 2006 Festival, nearly a year after the storm, several hundred thousand area residents remained outside of the city or state, as many neighborhoods were abandoned and in ruin, with little or no sign of recovery. A scarcity of jobs, housing, schools, medical services, and other basic needs, as well as environmental and health concerns, left over two-thirds of the pre-Katrina population questioning how, when, and if they could ever return home.

The neighborhoods that produced generations of musicians, social clubs, Mardi Gras Indians, and eccentric characters that gave New Orleans its identity were devastated, their populations displaced, dispersed, and focused on basic survival, not celebration. Many realized that the disaster was not yet over, as they struggled a year later with a difficult and confusing process of rebuilding.

In the year following the hurricane, many musicians were the focus of relief organizations and assistance. Some had been performing steadily around the world. Several musicians had relocated for the long term, citing better conditions and pay in other cities. The fate of New Orleans's musical traditions and cultural heritage was in serious jeopardy, as it was still not clear whether and when residents could return to rebuild their lives. While some predicted the demise of century-old cultural traditions, others believed that tragedy would inspire musical creativity or lead the New Orleans sound farther, influencing other styles wherever displaced musicians reside.

As the vulnerable city struggled for recovery and identity almost a year after Katrina, only time would tell if, when, and how much of the magic city would return. The Festival program offered a good occasion to reflect upon and savor the unique sound, spirit, and euphoria that New Orleans's musical traditions have shared with the nation and the world for generations, and to allow Washington audiences, once again, to enjoy those vibrant musical expressions.

Richard Kennedy was Coordinator of the Ralph Rinzler Memorial Concert. Michael White was Curator of the Been in the Storm So Long concerts; John Franklin was liaison with National Museum of African American History and Culture; and Chuck Siler was presenter.

Been in the Storm So Long was produced in collaboration with the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Established by Congress in 2003, the museum is devoted to the documentation of African American life, art, history, and culture. The museum's exhibitions cover topics as varied as slavery, post-Civil War Reconstruction, the Harlem Renaissance, and the civil rights movement. Additional funding was provided by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.

Working Americans

Introduction:
In its third year, the Working Americans program in 1975 presented the skills and lore found within the work days and nights of transportation workers. The goal of the program was to put names and faces in place of services and machinery, to approximate as closely as possible the actual work place, the human feelings and the tone of the occupation. By focusing on the skills, styles, stories, jokes, beliefs and customs of contemporary workers, the Festival sought to reveal the similarities and differences of occupational backgrounds. Programs focused on air traffic controllers, commercial aircraft machinists and maintenance workers, railroad workers, workers in trucking, and deep sea and inland boatmen.

Visitors to the Working Americans section of the Festival had three areas in which to share the occupational folklore and skills of workers in transportation. The first presented simulated work sites, including areas for bulk freight trucking, maritime skills, airline maintenance, and railroad maintenance of way. The second was devoted to the performance of stories, jokes, personal experiences and other narrative expressions of transportation workers. The Working Americans stage also featured the performance of songs and music growing out of the work experience. The third area was the Learning Center, where photographs of skills in the work environments, videotapes and sound recordings taken on-the-job could be experienced by the Festival visitor. Regular workshops and scheduled discussions dealt with such topics as the safety considerations in these occupations, the 24-hour work rhythm of transportation workers, and the similarities and differences found in the movement of people and goods by various transportation occupations.

This presentation was the result of extensive planning and cooperation among the AFL-CIO, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Smithsonian Institution and its folklife scholars, the National Park Service, and transportation workers throughout the country.

Shirley Askew served as Program Coordinator, with Robert McCarl as Field Research Coordinator and Susan Donahue as Assistant Program Coordinator. Sponsors included the AFL-CIO, U.S. Department of Labor, and U.S. Department of Transportation.

FP-1975-7RR-0144 features a Chicago urban blues band: Big Walter Horton and his Blues Band: Big Walter Horton (vocals and harmonica), Richard Molina on bass, S. P. Levy on drums, and Johnny Shines (vocals and electric guitar). (Johnny Shines is listed separately in the official Program, so perhaps he is simply playing with Big Walter and not really part of his group. Big Walter engages in some showmanship, demonstrating that he can play two harmonicas at once, and playing through his nose. Not particularly well-recorded.

African Diaspora

Introduction:
1975 was the second year of the Festival's African Diaspora program, which emphasized the strengths of black American cultural traditions. The organizing principle was to document those aspects of culture that link black Americans to Africa, via the Caribbean Islands and Latin America. Artists and craftspeople were invited to the 1975 Festival from the African nation of Ghana and the Caribbean nations of Jamaica and Haiti, and from across the United States. Musicians, dancers, cooks, woodcarvers, hairdressers, basket weavers and fishnet makers from three continents represented urban and rural, secular and sacred, home and community activities of black people of the Diaspora.

Presentations represented basic societal activities: worship, family, and trade. Worship activities took place on an altar setting that was a prototype of a rural U.S. church. Trade activities took place in a typical Caribbean marketplace. An African house, the traditional center of family activities, was the setting for small group presentations allowing for interchange between participants and Festival visitors.

Craft presentations demonstrated a link between traditions in the U.S., the Caribbean and Africa. Hair preparations have carried over without change from Africa. Cornrowing or hairbraiding and hair threading, part of a rich revival sweeping black American communities, were demonstrated by a black American and a Ghanaian hairdresser. Basket weavers from Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, working with sea grass and split palmetto in woven coils, sat beside craftspeople from Ghana and Jamaica as they used comparable materials and techniques to produce similar baskets. In the garden behind the African house, foodstuffs common to the black community such as okra, turnips, and root vegetables were grown. In the food demonstration area many of these foodstuffs were used in versions of recipes prepared by cooks from Chicago, Accra, and Kingston. Similarly, musical performances sought to emphasize the family relations among cultural experiences linked by common origins, demonstrating the continuum of vocal and instrumental styles across communities separated by oceans and centuries.

The African Diaspora program was led by Rosie Lee Horn (Program Coordinator, later Rosie Lee H. Hooks) and Bernice Johnson Reagon (Folklore Specialist). It was organized with guidance from the African Diaspora Advisory Group, whose members included Roy Bryce-Laporte, James Early, Leonard Goines, Pearl Williams Jones, Worth Long, Fela Sowande, A. B. Spellman, Ron Smith, Carol Maillard, and Jane Sapp.
