TAUNY honors local ?legends?

Listen to this story
Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, TAUNY, will honor masters of traditional life at the 2006 North Country Heritage Awards this weekend. The awards will be presented at the 14th annual Salute to North Country Legends on Sunday (2 pm) at Canton's Best Western University Inn. This year's awards, which recognize the recipients' contributions to the traditions and local culture of northern New York, will be presented to Chief Tom Porter, the spokesman and chief spiritual leader of the Mohawk community in Fonda; the Greek pastry makers of St. Vasilios Church in Watertown; Barry Gregson, a builder of rustic furniture from Schroon Lake; and Vincent and Louise Boyea, French-American musicians from Westville. Vince Boyea is a quiet, shy man. But put a fiddle in his hands and he knows how to start a few toes tapping. Todd Moe has this profile.
