Collection Overview

Biography / History
Formed in Kentucky in 1977 after a musical celebration at the International Women's Year Conference in Lexington, the Reel World String Band's original lineup featured Sue Massek on banjo and guitar, Karen Jones on fiddle, Sharon Ruble on bass, Belle Jackson on guitar, and Bev Futrell on mandolin, guitar, and harmonica.
The band's repertoire consists of a combination of traditional Appalachian songs and original songs that incorporate old-time music with influences from blues, jazz, and country. They draw inspiration from other musicians, including Florence Reece, Sara Ogan Gunning, and Lily May Ledford. With a dual focus on the preservation of Appalachian traditions and on advocacy for social justice causes, the Reel World String Band has a history of playing diverse venues. In addition to performing on concert stages and at folk festivals, the band has performed at conferences in support of activist endeavors to improve rights for women and the working class as well as at rallies and picket lines in protest of coal mining practices. The band has also led workshops on a variety of topics, including banjo and fiddle styles, the history of women in traditional music, songs of labor and environmental struggle, and old-time Appalachian dancing, traditional instruments, and musical techniques.
Current Reel World String Band members include original members Sue Massek, Bev Futrell, Karen Jones, and Sharon Ruble, who rejoined the band in 1995. Pianist Elise Melrood, who performed intermittently with the band and contributed to multiple Reel World albums, joined the band officially in 1995.
Scope and Content
The Reel World String Band records (dated circa 1971-2016, undated; 8.14 cubic feet; 19 boxes, 2 oversize boxes) primarily comprise promotional fliers, concert posters, contracts, programs, and articles that document the Kentucky women's band and its commitment to social justice advocacy from the band's founding in 1977 to the present. The Reel World String Band's activist efforts throughout Kentucky and Appalachia are reflected in programs and performance contracts for fundraisers on behalf of organizations such as the Cincinnati Urban Appalachia League and The Women's National Coal Miners Conference. Articles and correspondence describe additional benefit performances held by the band for striking workers at the Pittston Coal Company mines and at the Harlan County Jericol mines. Concert posters and fliers detail the Reel World String Band's history of performing in coffee houses, on college campuses, and at women's, Appalachian, and folk festivals.
The collection also includes performance photographs, festival artifacts, LPs and CDs of Reel World String Band’s albums, video recordings of the band's concerts, and a 2008 documentary film of performance clips and interviews with the band.
