I hope you will join me, folklorist Ginny Scheer, at Catskills Folk Connection's booth at the Cauliflower Festival, 11am - 4 pm on Saturday, September 25, in Margaretville, behind the Freshtown supermarket.
The foodways theme for this fall is fermented foods. At the Cauliflower Festival you will be able to view selections from my field interview with Robert Ford about making sauerkraut and listen to my radio interview with Madalyn Warren about making kimchi, both fermented Catskills products. I will even have a crock with cabbage getting ready to ferment!
In addition, I will acquaint visitors with Catskills Folk Connection's 2020 and 2021 programs by offering individual viewings of previous programs in video, audio and photos. These will include field interviews with tradition bearers, folk artists and square dance musicians, as well as presentations of works from "Folk Art in Wood," our successful in-person exhibit from 2020.
See you at the Cauliflower Festival!
