Berea College Sound Archives Fellowship

I’ve just arrived in Berea, KY where I’m excited to be doing a fellowship in the sound archives for the next month or so.  Here’s the lowdown on my project, the program and the other fellows: http://www.berea.edu/hutchinslibrary/specialcollections/amfp/amfp2012.asp

“Scott Prouty is a professional archivist and is deeply involved in playing and documenting West Virginia and Kentucky old-time fiddle music. His Fellowship research will involve documenting the work of Kentucky old-time music scholar John Harrod. He will record extensive interviews with Harrod about the fiddlers he has documented in his many hours of audio and video recordings that are available in Berea’s Southern Appalachian Archives. Research outcomes will include incorporating the interview text and audio in a Berea online library guide, one or more articles, and informal music exchanges with Bluegrass Ensemble members and other students.”
