Vintage Fiddlers Oral History Project Collection
The Vintage Fiddlers Oral History Project Collection was initiated in early 1985 to document, collect and preserve the careers of nine traditional Appalachian musicians. The goal of the project was to make available to scholars and folk music enthusiasts information about traditional music in Eastern Kentucky. The Appalachian Development Center, Kentucky Folklife Foundation and the Kentucky Oral History Commission funded the project and Morehead State University and the Kentucky Historical Society were designated as repositories to permanently house the collection.

Collection consists of audio and video interviews of fiddlers from Eastern Kentucky by Marynell Young in the summer of 1985. The collection contains interviews and music samples of traditional folk musicians Alfred Bailey, Virgil and Clela Alfrey, Chillson Leach, J.P. and Annadeene Fraley, David Sizemore, Hiram Stamper, and Clyde Davenport. Included with the interviews, are black and white images taken by David Bartlett of the musicians.
