Description
One reel to reel recording. Boltin served as emcee. Schuman played the autoharp; and Fontana the banjo. Their performance began on T81-61. Williams was born 15 February 1919 in Itta Bena, Mississippi. After traveling with several acts in the 1930s/1940s, he moved to Florida to work the citrus groves. He always played the diddly bow, a one-string instrument played throughout that south that functioned as a primitive guitar. The Green Grass Revival's set continued on T81-63.
