Description
One digital audio tape (DAT). Williams served as emcee. The first three songs the Versiteers played (not listed here) were not recorded due to equipment failure. Mortham was Secretary of State at the time; the Florida Folklife Program and festival fell under her jurisdiction. She officially recognized McLean as a Florida Artist. This was followed by a McLean tribute, including stories and performances by Southwind, Fitchen, Frank & Ann Thomas, Kennedy, Todd, and Williams. Singer-songwriter Will McLean was often called the 'Father of Florida Folk.' The Black Hat Troubadour, a nickname for the hat he usually wore, authored over 3500 songs, and was a national figure on the folk music scene. A fifth generation Floridian, he died in 1990, the year after he won the Florida Folk Heritage award. Grooms played with Dennis Devine (guitar), Waye Martin (fiddle), Dan Peterson (bass) among others.

Description
One reel to reel recording. Walker served as emcee. Known as Diamond Teeth Mary for the jewels she placed in her teeth in the 1940s, Mary was born in West Virginia, and always claimed to be the half sister of fellow blues singer Bessie Smith. In 1918, she moved to Florida's Gulf Coast. During her later years, she lived in Bradenton, Florida. Although McClain was a popular performer in the 1920s and 1930s, she stopped performing the blues for many years. She was rediscovered by the Florida Folklife Program in the 1980s. In 1986, she won the Florida Folk Heritage Award in 1986. She died on 4 April 2000.
