Summary Information

Title: Larry and June Bare Old-Time Music Collection, 1993-2003, undated
Collection: AC.845
Extent: 2.0 linear feet (4 shoeboxes)
Abstract:

The Larry and June Bare Old-Time Music Collection is a set of 24 VHS tapes of old-time and bluegrass concerts and contests, mostly in Florida, but at other venues, including recorded TV shows.

Creator: Wightman, Alden

Biographical/Historical Note

Most or all of the recordings were likely recorded in Florida by Alden Wightman as a gift for the Bares.

Scope and Contents

The Larry and June Bare Old-Time Music Collection consists of two boxes of VHS videocassettes, and one box each of User CD and Archival CD copies. Cassette labels indicate footage filmed at various folk and old time music festivals in Florida from 1999 – 2003. The collection also contains programs on Doc Watson, likely recorded from PBS station WUNC. From a note inside one VHS, likely that most or all were recorded by Rev. Alden Wightman of Florida and sent to Larry and June Bare.

Arrangement

The tapes were already divided and numbered into four sets and remain in that arrangement.

Administrative Information

Access Restrictions

This collection is open for use in the Dougherty Reading Room. An appointment for research is recommended. The Dougherty Reading Room is located on the 4th floor of Belk Library in Special Collections.

Acquisitions Information

The provenance is unclear, because the collection was found in a box with a mailing label to June Bare with no other paperwork. A note inside one VHS indicates that Rev. Alden Wightman recorded that tape, and in comparison of handwriting, it appears he may have also recorded the tapes from Florida. It was accessioned as AC.2010.058.

Processing Information

Processed by Anita Elliott, April 2014. This collection was processed as part of a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission. The grant funded extensive processing of the backlog within the W. L. Eury Appalachian Collection between 2012 and 2014.
