Size 68 items
Abstract The Charlotte Folk Music Society Collection consists of audio recordings, 1982-1986, created and compiled by historian and radio host, Tom Hanchett, at Charlotte's WFAE public radio station. The collection includes programs from three radio series: The Blues Show, An American Almanac, and An American Almanac: Live in the Studio. The Blues Show was a thematic one-hour program that introduced viewers to blues music through such subjects and figures as Piedmont blues, jump blues, Blind Boy Fuller, and Rev. Gary Davis, among others. An American Almanac was a thematic program featuring artists who recorded in Charlotte, N.C. between the years 1927-1945. Subjects of the show included the Blue Sky Boys, the Delmore Brothers, Fiddlin' Arthur Smith, the Mainer family, the Carter Family, the Morris Brothers, and Jimmie Davis. An American Almanac featured recordings from reissues available on LP, recordings of covers by modern performers, and new recordings by featured artists, with commentary by Hanchett. An American Almanac: Live in the Studio consisted of edited performances and interviews with folk musicians, including nationally-known artists, Charlotte natives, and "living room pickers." Artists featured in this program included David Holt, Si Kahn, Cathy Fink, Rory Block, Claude Caset, Don White, Whitey and Hogan, Nappy Brown, Dot and Chester Lorenz, The Down Home Folks, and the Slop Jar Serenaders.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Thomas (Tom) Hanchett began volunteering at WFAE as a news reader and jazz disc jockey in the fall of 1981, not long after arriving in Charlotte to direct an "inventory of architectural and historic resources" in the city's older neighborhoods for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Historic Properties Commision. Hanchett took over hosting duties of An American Almanac in 1983 after its previous host, Frank Talbert, departed.

Hanchett is best known as a historian, especially of the history of Charlotte, N.C., and joined Levine Museum of the New South in uptown Charlotte as staff historian in 1999. Educated at Cornell, University of Chicago, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he writes widely on southern culture and urban history. Highlights include Sorting Out the New South City (UNC Press); Salad Bowl Suburbs in Charlotte NC: Global Evolution of a New South City; and essays collected at www.historysouth.org.

Titles compiled from the Southern Folklife Collection database and field notes.

Anecdotal field notes (by Tom Hanchett) for FT-20257/4875-4917 reside in Folder 844 within the Southern Folklife Collection Field Notes Collection (#30025).

According to Tom Hanchett these Live in the Studio sessions had only a few criteria: "Instruments had to be non-electric, except for electric bass. Players had to have an interest in traditional music (loosely defined as pre WWII), or be creating their own material. Professional polish was not a primary consideration. The segments' theme was a celebration of "people's music," local, acoustic and homemade."
