“There are traditions all around us, in everything we do.” says Howard Wright Marshall.  “Generally speaking, a Tradition is some sort of craft, or story, song, fiddle tune or even recipe that has been transmitted largely by aural tradition from one person to another. Over several generations, these things become embedded in the community, and help tell us a lot about the personality of the place, and the kind of people who live there.”
