Regional America: Kentucky

Collection Creator:
Smithsonian Institution. Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
July 4-8, 1973
Introduction:
The Festival's practice of featuring one State continued in 1973 under the new rubric of "Regional America", in anticipation of the Bicentennial Festival in 1976. The Commonwealth of Kentucky was featured, allowing the Smithsonian's new partner, the National Park Service, to focus attention on three national parks in the Commonwealth: Abraham Lincoln Birthplace, Mammoth Cave, and Cumberland Gap. Festival activities centered around a Kentucky tobacco barn that hosted many of the musical performances and, on July 7, 1973, the second annual Smithsonian Fiddler's Convention. Kentucky's horse culture was also a central focus of the program, with a race track and show ring for daily presentations. Kentucky's important role as a center of American traditional music - from old time to bluegrass, blues and sacred music - was celebrated with many notable performers.

Richard H. Hulan served as Program Coordinator for the Regional America program, assisted by James Moon. Within Kentucky, a corporation was created to coordinate the cooperation, the Kentucky 1973 Festival of American Folklife, Inc., with major support coming from the office of the Governor and the Commonwealth of Kentucky Department of Public Information.

Introduction:
The 1973 Festival saw the inauguration of a new theme presentation entitled "Working Americans". The presentation of working peoples' skills, crafts, and lore began in 1971 and continued in 1972 when the Union Workers programs featured ten member unions of the AFL-CIO. Working Americans differed from these earlier efforts in numerous ways, most substantially in the consideration of how working people serve human needs and how their skills and expressions have shaped a major national festival to celebrate the nation's 200th birthday.

Working Americans in 1973 featured "Workers Who Build Our Shelter", to be followed in future years by exploration of those workers who provide our food and other needs. Nine unions of the building and construction trades demonstrated their skills, complemented by a full musical program that presented various traditions enjoyed by urban and rural working people, from labor songs to urban blues and a Cajun band. On July 7 and 8, a gospel stage was dedicated to presentations of diverse traditions of African American sacred music. Narrative workshops on the Working Americans stage focused attention on the oral traditions of each of the building trades, as well as on the customs and practices that spanned several trades.

The Working Americans Program Coordinator was Shirley Askew, assisted by Denis Lachman. Major sponsors included the AFL-CIO, its Building and Construction Trades Department, and the U.S. Department of Labor.
