The folk arts weave a culture together, but can get lost in a fast moving digital world. The Maryland Traditions Apprenticeship Award helps preserve them. Ahead of Saturday’s Folklife Festival, we speak with two Apprenticeship Award winners: Jazz bass clarinetist Todd Marcus and waterman Captain Ted Daniels. We also talk to the director of Folk and Traditional Arts at the Maryland State Arts Council, Chad Buterbaugh, about why it’s important to conserve a craft.
