In 1899, a fundraising program for Berea College featured a group of students from the mountains of eastern Kentucky singing traditional songs from their homes. The audience was entranced. That small en-counter at the end of the last century lies near the beginning of an unparalleled national -- and international -- fascination with the indigenous music of a single state. Kentucky has long figured prominently in our national sense of traditional music. Over the years, a diverse group of people -- reformers, enthusiasts, the musically literate and the musically illiterate, radicals, liberals, a British gentleman and his woman companion, amateurs, local residents, and academics -- have been sufficiently captivated by that music to have devoted considerable energy to harvesting it from its fertile ground, studying its various manifestations, and considering its many performers. Kentucky Folkmusic: An Annotated Bibliography is a guide to the literature of this remarkable music. More than seven hundred entries, each with an evaluative annotation, comprise the largest bibliographic resource for the folkmusic of any state or region in North America. Divided into eight sections, the bibliography covers collections and anthologies; fieldworkers and scholars; singers, musicians, and other performers; text-centered studies; studies of history, context, and style; festivals; dance; and discographies, check-lists, and other reference tools. A subject index, an author index, and an index of periodicals provide access to the materials. From early hymnals and songsters to Kentucky performers of traditional music, the bibliography is a comprehensive guide to music which has for many years been one of the major emblems of American traditional music.

"One of the first great reference tools on the Commonwealth, this WPA Guide is an important, vital part of our heritage. While it includes brief essays describing Kentucky's history, folklore, education, industry, geology, ethnic mix and other topics, the most remarkable feature is the driving tours that are as accurate today as they were more than half a century ago. Careful annotations give directions, point out historical and tourist sites, describe the country side, and even provide mileage for the drives."

The oral tradition of Kentucky is one of the most rich and interesting in the nation and has attracted a number of outstanding men and women -- scholars and writers, teachers and singers -- who have devoted their energies to Kentucky's folk and their ways. Some have collected examples of the state's unique speech patterns and word usages. Others have recorded local place names and the legends that surround them, or the yarns and tall tales transmitted from one generation to the next. Musicians have sought the authentic mountain folk songs, both old and new, and gifted writers have woven details of their Kentucky upbringing into poems, novels, and stories. The Harvest and the Reapers illuminates the work of those who labor tirelessly to preserve Kentucky's oral history and traditions.

Reimagining Camelot

Reimagining Camelot

This, then, is the story of the industry, the company, the town, and the people who keep alive the memory of this community.

Wheelwright, Kentucky was founded as a coal camp, a community built to serve the needs of the mining industry and intended to last only as long as the coal. Hundreds of communities such as this flourished in the Appalachian Mountains from the late nineteenth through the early twentieth century. In 1930, however, Inland Steel Company purchased the town from Elk Horn Coal Company and began a period of community development that ushered in an era that some today refer to as Camelot, a golden age when all one could want could be found within the confines of a two-mile long hollow in eastern Kentucky. Or so the story goes. Inland Steel sold the town to Island Creek Coal Company at the end of 1965, and the town imploded. The population declined by nearly 50 percent as people left, either to work for Inland Steel near Mount Vernon, Illinois, or to other mines in the area. Residents who had long been accustomed to working for, and renting from, a benevolent company now had to learn to manage without the paternalistic oversight that made their town into such a wondrous place to live. The new owners had no interest in maintaining the town as residents had become accustomed, and it would be many years before those who remained had the wherewithal to manage the town for themselves. Instead, they became tenants with a reluctant and neglectful landlord and watched as this once beautiful town became dirty and dilapidated. For those who lived in Wheelwright during its golden age, however, the magnetic pull of those memories was not to be denied. In 1989, many who had not lived in the town in decades came together to organize a reunion. That first year, over 500 people gathered in Lexington, Kentucky to commemorate what Ray Gibson dubbed as their Camelot. That reunion continues today, bringing together people from across the country in their annual celebration of a place that lives on in their memories. And when they no longer congregate, when those who remember those halcyon days of Wheelwright are no longer alive to celebrate their shared past, their Appalachian Camelot will die. This, then, is the story of the industry, the company, the town, and the people who keep alive the memory of this community.
