NC Folklife Institute Requests Help for Directory Project

The North Carolina Folklife Institute is in the process of creating a Web directory of traditional artists in the North Carolina mountain region of the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area, to include musicians, craftspeople, and masters of a wide variety of traditional arts, including foodways. Members of the SFA are invited to contact me with suggestions about whom we should include. Do you have a favorite traditional cook or know of someone who produces food in a regional tradition, and who lives in the North Carolina mountains? I'd love to hear from you. With thanks, Sarah Bryan (919) 918-7711
