Size Approximately 200 items
Abstract The Tom Carter and Blanton Owen Collection primarily consists of audio recordings, 1948-1975, created and compiled by folklorists, Tom Carter and Blanton Owen. The majority of the collection consists of field tapes, 1973-1974, created by Carter and Owen as part of their joint fieldwork project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Titled, "Traditional Instrumental Music From Southwest Virginia: A Field Collection and Oral History," the fieldwork project comprised of documenting the traditional music found in one region of the Southern Appalachians through recorded music, interviews, and photographs. The collection contains dubbed copies of the original field recordings that Carter and Owen created as part of the grant-funded project, as well as a copy of the original grant proposal with handwritten notations. The recordings primarily feature traditional instrumental music, mainly fiddle and banjo played in the old-time style, from southwestern Virginia and northwestern North Carolina, including Carroll, Patrick, Grayson, and Floyd counties, Va., and Alleghany and Surry counties, N.C. Included are performances of ballads, early country music, gospel songs, bluegrass music, dance calls, and tin pan alley, as well as interviews, telling of legends, and other spoken material. The music is performed on fiddle, banjo, piano, hammered dulcimer, Appalachian dulcimer, accordion, guitar, harmonica, jew's-harp, autoharp, steel guitar, and Hawaiian guitar. Performers include Huston Caudill, Luther Franklin Davis, Armstead Roscoe Parrish, Dan Tate, Fred Cockerham (1901- ), Estil Cortez Ball, Albert Hash, Kyle Creed, Taylor Kimble (1892- ), Tommy Jarrell (1901-1985), and Virgil Craven (1902-1980). The collection also includes additional dubbed audio recordings, circa 1948-1949, featuring the Shelor Family, Dad Blackard's Moonshiners, Ernest Stanley Band, Dudley Spangler, and J.W. (John Watts) Spangler (1882-1970), as well as field notes created by Tom Carter, Blanton Owen, and staff of the Southern Folklife Collection. The field notes correspond to the audio recordings found in the collection and may include notes on performers' names, technical information about the field tape, a brief description of contents, song titles, and tunings.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Tom Carter is an emeritus professor of architectural history in the University of Utah's College of Architecture and Planning. He has a degree in history from Brown University and studied folklore at both the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Indiana University. His chief research interest has been the building traditions of the western United States. His publications include Images of an American Land: Vernacular Architecture Studies in the West, and (with Betsy Cromley) the text Invitation to Vernacular Architecture: A Guide to the Study of Ordinary Buildings and Landscapes.

Blanton Owen (1945-1998) was a folklorist, musician, and photographer. He studied folklore at Indiana University and for nearly three decades engaged in the documentation of folklore and music in Appalachia, other sections of the South, and in the West.

From 1973 to 1974 Carter and Owen conducted fieldwork in Southwest Virginia that was funded by the National Endowment of the Humanities. The purpose and significance of the project, titled "Traditional Instrumental Music From Southwest Virginia: A Field Collection and Oral History," was to document with recorded music, interviews, and photographs the traditional instrumental music found in one region of the Southern Appalachians, while also illustrating the viability of folklore study as an intermediary between community and scholastic life. The original NEH-funded field tapes created by Carter and Owen reside at the Library of Congress, while copies were made and deposited at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The field tapes were also used as source material for the two-volume LP, Old Originals: Old-Time Instrumental Music, which was released by Rounder Records in 1976.
