OHR155: OHR Presents: Ozark Original Singer Songwriters, 10/25/2021

From Ozark Highlands Radio | Part of the Ozark Highlands Radio series | 58:59

Buffalo_gals_prx_small Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

This week, a collection of exceptional Ozark original singer-songwriters recorded live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Also, interviews with these canorous poets.

Folk songs don’t just materialize out of thin air and they don’t grow on trees.  They’re conceived and written by regular people to express their feelings, their experiences and their culture.  Although we tend to think of folk songs as records of a distant past, contemporary songwriters carry on this rich tradition.  Nowhere is the tradition more alive than in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and Missouri.  Join us, as we present a small sampling of true contemporary Ozark original singer-songwriters creating brand new folk music for these modern times.

Featured on this episode of Ozark Highlands Radio are:  Buffalo Gals band member Melissa Carper of Eureka Springs, Arkansas; Mountain View, Arkansas’ own Carolyn Carter; Batesville, Arkansas native and Creek Rocks band member Cindy Woolf; Mountain View resident and Ozark Folk Center regular, Grace Stormont; Taller Than You band member and hammered dulcimer champion, Mineral Point, Missouri’s Ben Haguewood; Buffalo Gals band member and award winning fiddler, Eureka Springs, Arkansas’ Rebecca Patek; Traveling minstrel and multi-instrumentalist Willi Carlisle of Fayetteville, Arkansas.

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers a 1973 archival recording of Ozark original singer-songwriter Jimmy Driftwood performing his well known song “The Battle of New Orleans,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

Author, folklorist and songwriter Charley Sandage presents an historical portrait of the people, events and indomitable spirit of Ozark culture that resulted in the creation of the Ozark Folk Center State Park and its enduring legacy of music and craft.  In this episode, Charley speaks with Ozark Folk Center master printer Troy Odom about the techniques of early printing presses.

How does hatred become so intense that it turns whole groups of people violently against each other? In the early 1990s, Amra Sabic-El-Rayess, a then-teenager in Bosnia and Herzegovina, survived the Serbian siege meant to wipe out Bosnian Muslims like her. For three years, she lived under the constant threat of bombs, sniper fire, and starvation. She survived in part thanks to a stray cat that attached itself to her family. Today Sabic-El-Rayess is a professor at Columbia University, and she has a memoir for young adults called “The Cat I Never Named.”


Dark Fish

Some of the darkest-skinned creatures on the planet live on the bottom of the sea. Which, when you think of it, is strange because there’s no sunlight down there, so why would fish need skin so black it absorbs nearly all light it encounters? Alex Davis is a Ph.D. student at Duke University working on a team that studies these super-dark fish. 


Love the Wasp

Biologists have pretty much convinced us to be nice to bees, right? We need them to pollinate the food we eat, and if you leave them alone, they usually won’t bother you. But wasps are another story entirely. They’re just mean. Aren’t they? A group of scientists in the UK are trying hard to get us to love wasps. Seirian Sumner, a professor of behavioral ecology at University College London, is one of these scientists.

In today’s stories, our protagonists, of all shapes and sizes, are called to go on quests to solve problems and help others out.

After new episodes drop, fans of TV shows from The Bachelor to Grey’s Anatomy take to social media to dissect what they just saw. And the twittersphere isn’t just venting about plot twists and love interests--sometimes there are bigger issues at hand. Dr. Morgan Smalls says that shows like Insecure and Being Mary Jane that feature Black women protagonists and majority Black casts inspire important conversations about race on social media. And: Disney princesses can be a bit of a scapegoat for what’s wrong with representations of women in movies. One of the problems: they don’t have many healthy female relationships. Jessica Stanley talks about the toxic relationships of wicked stepsisters and evil witches and how modern Disney movies are doing better.

Later in the show: Movies and television tell stories about who we are and who we get to be. What does that mean for people who don’t find themselves on the screen? Andre Cavalcante explores the history of trans representation in the media and how trans women have subverted the stories so often told about them. Plus: Movies are so much more than entertainment--they shape the way we see the world around us. Even when we don’t realize it. Kimberly Brown looks at common stereotypes of Black women in movies and what it means for a casual moviegoer to watch film in an anti-racist way.
