Our Thursday archive selection this week is a conversation with Vivienne Schiffer, author of the novel Camp Nine. The book is about a girl, a small town, and people relocated to a Japanese internment camp in Arkansas. It first aired on our show in May 2012.
Harry Bolick is on a quest for “worldwide cultural domination of Mississippi tunes.” He’s written a book, titled Mississippi Fiddle Tunes and Songs from the 1930s, and he’s in the middle of a two-month tour to bring greater exposure to those songs. That tour recently brought him through Fayetteville for a fiddle workshop, an old-time jam session at Smoke and Barrel Tavern, and to play during the monthly Fayetteville Square Dance.
