The original donation, which focuses on country music in Maine, was added to the archive in the summer of 2006. The focus was expended to music in Maine generally as well as storytelling (especially about Herbert F. Jackson) and jokes when other interviews were added by McKeen.
Fifteen accessions comprise the collection, which include Hal Lone Pine radio shows and oral interviews. These materials were gathered and donated by Jeff “Smokey” McKeen. The interviews were conducted by McKeen with country musicians and listeners in the 1990s to the present. Several other accessions outside of this collection are related to McKeen, especially in MF 039 (Traditional Music of Maine Series) and MF 130 (Fieldwork in Folklore and Oral History/AY 425).
