  2. Coronavirus in Florida

    The  Coronavirus came ashore to Florida and ran people off our crowded beaches. It caused the shutdown of Sports,  Spring Break, and other community events, even worse is the shutdown of clubs, coffeehouses, home concerts, festivals, and conventions.  People have gone to the internet in search of entertainment and opportunities to express themselves via Zoom, Youtube, and other digital forms of communication.

    Florida Folk Festival singer/songwriters are invited to send us your music and performances, in audio/visual formats, for possible use in a special podcast scheduled for the weekend of May 22-23-24 – an extra-special time when so many of us had planned spending quality time with friends and family at the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in White Springs . . . for the 68th Annual Florida Folk Festival, of course! Unfortunately, the country’s longest running folk festival has been cancelled for this year.

    Likewise, if any Florida Folk Festival attendee has good video or photographs of any aspect of the festival, we’d like to see that as well.

    The Florida Folk Show Podcast (www.floridafolkshow.com) had been planning, since last year, to produce an episode on the Florida Folk Festival for broadcast prior to the 2020 event, to help promote the Festival! To this end, we’ve already collected a ton of material from anywhere we could find it, from our own personal collections as well as the state archives and Florida Memory Project.

    Instead of a podcast to appear prior to the Festival, we would like to present a virtual Folk Festival that would stretch over that same entire weekend (May 22, 23, 24), during the same 30 hours the real three-day festival music schedule would have been staged.

    But we will need a whole lot more material to do that. We need Florida songwriters and fans of the Florida Folk Festival to step up to the plate and send us:
