Interview and music performance with blues singer Moses Williams

Date
1977-11-27
Description
One reel to reel recording. 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. Moses talked about playing the diddly (for this recording, he hung a broom wire from the wall); performing with Sonny Boy Williams; and his life history. He played several songs. NOTE: According to the depositor's agreement, any commercial use of this recording must be cleared by Moses Williams or Dwight Devane.
