Occupational Folk Artists

There are many occupations that stretch back in time. Farmers and fishermen, instrument makers, and railroad workers. Long Island Traditions has documented some of these as part of its ongoing occupational research. Visit these artists to learn more about their time-honored professions.

Some of these artists are available for public programs. If you would like to arrange an event, call us at (516) 767-8803 or e-mail us at info@longislandtraditions.org.

Don’t forget to visit our Events page for information on upcoming programs.
