Texas: A Celebration of Music, Food, and Wine

Archival materials
Introduction:
Some 120 of Texas's best musicians, dancers, singers, cooks, and winemakers came to Washington for the 2008 Festival's celebration of the Lone Star State.

Winemakers, sommeliers, viticulturists, and others gave visitors a look behind the scenes at the fascinating but largely unknown world of Texas wine. The vast state has been blessed with dozens of microclimates, many closely mimicking the more famous microclimates of France and Spain. While most people know that Texas is BIG, few understand the variety of climates the state has to offer. Despite visitors' disappointment that wine could not be sampled on National Park Service grounds, a sensory station was set up to educate people on what they could learn from the scents wine produces.

The food demonstration area offered visitors an illustrated symposium on the diversity of Texas cultures. Vietnamese, Polish, African American, Tex-Mex, cowboy, and Czech traditions were shared, along with barbecue, home canning, and more. But most interesting were the ways that traditions crossed cultural lines. Take chicken fried steak, for instance: early German and Austrian settlers brought recipes for Wiener schnitzel and "texafied" it as they became more Texan. There are hundreds of examples of foods in Texas born of neighbors from different cultures sharing and adapting traditions. This is still happening today and made for rich conversations in the Lone Star Kitchen.

The unique flavor of the Texas singer-songwriter tradition was also on display. Texas musical icons were in abundance, among them Joe Ely, Joel Guzman, Guy Clark, Verlon Thompson, Terri Hendrix, Lloyd Maines, CJ Chenier, Little Joe y la Familia, Marcia Ball, Los Texmaniacs, and Asleep at the Wheel. They performed, delivered workshops, and spoke about their inspirations and what makes Texas the perfect environment for music making. Songs were sung in English, Spanish, Polish, Czech, and many a combination of the above. Sacred music is also an essential part of the Texas ethos. The Original Soul Invaders and the Jones Family Singers shared this moving tradition with appreciative audiences. Dance was not forgotten; it was, after all, a program about Texas where mere listening is unacceptable. Texans get up and move when they hear music. Texas dancers gamely ignored the sweltering Washington heat to show visitors how to dance to zydeco, Cajun, mariachi, blues, western swing, conjunto, polka of all varieties, cowboy music, and more.

Pat Jasper was Curator and Dawn Orsak was Foodways and Wine Curatorial Consultant; Amanda Pike served as Program Coordinator.

The program was produced in partnership with the Texas Office of the Governor, Economic Development and Tourism. The Major Donor to the program was the Texas Commission on the Arts. Contributors to the program included the Texas Department of Agriculture, the City of El Paso, Houston Endowment Inc., the San Antonio Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the City of San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs. Additional support was provided by the Music Performance Fund, with major in-kind support provided by Southwest Airlines.

Introduction:
Ralph Rinzler (1934-94), founding director of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, worked with a host of musicians, craftspeople, and folklorists, doing fieldwork, developing exhibitions, issuing recordings, and presenting concerts. The Ralph Rinzler Memorial Concert series honors Rinzler by highlighting his work and the work of his colleagues in conserving and extending traditional expressive culture. In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the 2016 Rinzler Concert featured extraordinary musicians from across the country who have received the NEA National Heritage Fellowship, the nation's highest award for excellence in the folk and traditional arts.

Every year since 1982, the NEA has awarded National Heritage Fellowships to a broad range of traditional artists in recognition of their artistic excellence and their contributions to our nation's diverse heritage. To date, more than 400 individuals and groups from every region of the United States have been honored by this prestigious award. These artists are not only great masters of their tradition; as teachers, innovators, and advocates, they have made significant contributions to the living cultural heritage of their communities. Together they represent a remarkable portrait of the great diversity of cultures and artistic traditions that enrich our nation.

This concert offered a preview of the 2017 Festival that will feature a full program on the NEA National Heritage Fellows. It was presented in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. Marjorie Hunt, Cliff Murphy, Arlene Reiniger, Cheryl Schiele, and Daniel Sheehy constituted the Rinzler Concert Curatorial Team, and Ari Pineda was Evening Concert Coordinator.

Other special events included evening concerts featuring musicians from the Basque or California programs (for which, see the corresponding series). A special concert on July 7 illustrated how young generations of musicians are harmonizing vintage Armenian melodies with contemporary sensibilities. The members of Armenian Public Radio grew up in the musically vibrant diaspora communities in Southern California and took part in the California program. For this concert, they were joined by members of TmbaTa, a youth orchestra from Yerevan, Armenia, based at the Tumo Center for Creative Technologies, an innovative after-school program serving twelve- to seventeen-year-olds. This concert was sponsored by the My Armenia program, a joint partnership between USAID, the Smithsonian, and the people of Armenia, and presented in collaboration with the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia in Washington, D.C.

A closing concert brought together the eight-piece Korrontzi folk band, led by Agus Bandadiaran, who plays the trikitixa (Basque accordion). Through its performances, the band seeks to elevate Basque traditional music and dance, adding modern instruments and rhythms to make it accessible to a larger public. Representing California was Banda Brillo de San Miguel Cuevas, a ten-piece drum and brass band that plays chilenas from the Mixteco community of Oaxaca via Fresno, California. Rounding out the evening was the Armenian youth orchestra TmbaTa (see above).

Introduction:
In 1968 the Festival began its ongoing concern with the regional cultures of America with a distinct "featured State" program about Texas. Festival Director Ralph Rinzler had devised the idea of State programming at the Newport Folk Festival but was not able to implement it. He enlisted Mack McCormick, whom he knew from Newport, to help put the Texas program together, received support through the Institute of Texan Cultures, and built upon a program at the 1968 Hemisfair in San Antonio. The Festival program included basket makers, a saddle maker and blacksmith, oven builders, a Czech dance band, a Tigua Indian group, corrido singers, a mariachi band, Lightnin' Hopkins, storytellers, and a variety of cooks. The program illustrated that regional culture often crosses ethnic communities and provides a particular cultural identity and aesthetic style. At the same time, the program showed, regions generally host considerable cultural variation and diversity.

The Texas presentations were produced by the newly formed Institute of Texan Cultures. Traditional food of the Southwest was prepared and served by the San Antonio Conservation Society.
