Jim Smoak Banjo Music


This collection is comprised of recorded interviews, transcripts, performance recordings, and additional materials documenting the music and experiences of banjo players Jim Smoak.  The collection results from the research and work of Joseph O’Connell and the support of a 2013 Appalachian Sound Archives Fellowship from the Berea College Special Collections and Archives.  From July through August 2013, O’Connell worked with Smoak to document his work for the Appalachian Sound Archives at Berea College.
