|FROM THE EDITOR|
From the Spring-Summer
2008 issue of Voices:
This issue collects
articles spanning time
and place, representing
local and global
folklore. We begin
with Susan Davis’s
“Wise Fools, Foolish
Virgins, and Dirty
Legman and American Folk Humor,” presented
as a Bruce Buckley Memorial Lecture
in Cooperstown on April 19, 2007. Profiling
another famous figure, Andrew Martin
writes of Pete Seeger’s important—and unlikely—
contribution to the steel drum movement
as consultant to Admiral Daniel Gallery,
founder of the U.S. Navy Steel Band.
Jocelyn Arem researches Caffé Lena in Saratoga
Springs, which has played a central role
in the politics and music of American folk
culture since 1960, while Rick March guides
readers through an Internet tour of Bosnian
music to demonstrate how music continues
to shape Bosnian communities in the United
States. Finally, Les Cleveland—a young New
Zealand soldier in 1943—shares his Pacific
encounter with Lil Ol’ New York.
Also in this issue, Voices welcomes photographer
Paul Margolis, whose new column,
“Still Going Strong,” focuses on skills, crafts,
and trades from earlier times that are still going
strong in hectic, cutting-edge New York
City. As always, I remind you, our readers, that
our publication is only as strong as your contributions.
Please keep your articles, reviews,
and ideas coming our way.
