Wade in the Water
In 2004, Smithsonian Folklife Festival
featured the maritime cultures of the Mid-Atlantic region, from Long Island to North Carolina. Now, this site gives a home on the web to the cultural documentation gathered for the festival -- music
, stories and oral history
, an interactive map
, the occupational folklore and natural history of regional fisheries
, video, and more. The material, ably compiled by folklorists and educators, creates a lasting and very accessible archive of festival highlights as well as an excellent overview of the distinct coastal culture of the Mid-Atlantic. Don't miss the great menhaden net-hauling chantey Help Me to Raise 'Em
(links to mp3).

Well, slap me with a large trout!
