Alan JabbourAlan Jabbour's (April - June 2008) work in the Berea Archives provided the opportunity to delve deeply into Kentucky fiddling especially as represented in the recordings of collectors Bruce Greene and John Harrod. His study involved analyzing the similarities and differences between eastern Kentucky fiddling and that of North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, the focus of his well known previous documentation efforts. In collaboration with Karen Jabbour, recordings from Berea's collections of Old Regular Baptist singing were accessed in connection with research on the Decoration Day cemetery tradition. Alan's Fellowship Activity Report is available as a pdf file. (Document will open in a new window.)
