Abstract:

The Philip F. Gura Collection consists of audio recordings, pictures, songbooks, and other printed items compiled by historian and musician, Philip F. Gura. The audio recordings, 1975-2001, consist primarily of live recordings of old-time music festivals and conventions, including the Appalachian String Band Festival in Clifftop. W.Va., Fries Fiddler's Convention in Fries, Va., Galax Fiddler's Convention in Galax, Va., Grayson County Fiddler's Convention in Grayson County, Va., and the Mt. Airy Fiddler's Convention in Mt. Airy, N.C., among others. Notable musicians featured on the live recordings include Andrew Cahan, Alice Gerrard, Tommy Jarrell, Mike Seeger, as well as Philip F. Gura and his son, David Gura. Other recordings include live recordings of workshops, dubbed field recordings, private releases, and interviews conducted by Philip F. Gura. Interviewees featured on the recordings include the New Lost City Ramblers, as well as musician and folklorist, Alan Jabbour. The colleciton also includes facsimiles of pictures and illustrations used by Philip F. Gura for his publications America's Instrument: The Banjo in the Nineteenth Century (Chapel Hill, University of North Carolina Press, 1999) and C.F. Martin and His Guitars, 1796-1873 (Chapel Hill, University of North Carolina Press, 2003). The pictures appear to be sourced from printed materials and consist primarily of illustrations of banjos, guitars, musicians, music stores, and instrument manufacturers.
