Overview

Join Maryland Traditions, the folklife program of the Maryland State Arts Council, in honoring three outstanding stewards of our state’s living cultural traditions in a public ceremony and concert on Saturday, December 2. The event will be hosted at the Proscenium Theater in the Performing Arts and Humanities Building on the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. The ceremony will feature this year’s recipients: in the category of Person, documentary story quilter Joan M.E. Gaither of Anne Arundel County; in the category of Place, the Baltimore American Indian Center (pictured); and in the category of Tradition, the Deal Island Skipjack Races and Festival. The evening will conclude with a country blues concert by the Phil Wiggins Blues House Party. Bandleader and harmonica player Wiggins, of Takoma Park, was honored earlier this year with a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts—the nation’s highest honor in the folk and traditional arts.
