Mary McClain performing at the 1981 Festival of American Folklife

Date
1981-06-24
Description
One reel to reel recording. Known as Diamond Teeth Mary for the jewels she placed in her teeth in the 1940s, Mary McClain 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. She died on 4 April  2000. Held on the National Mall and sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute, the festival began in 1967. Created by folklorist Ralph Rinzler, the annual festival showcases national folklife, usually focusing on one state each year.

Recording of the Florida-Alabama Progressive Seven Shape Note Singing Convention

Recording of the Florida-Alabama Progressive Seven Shape Note Singing Convention

Date
1980-05-18
Description
Six reel to reel recordings. The convention was founded in 1928, and performs four times a year. Shaped Note singing was an a capella style of church music that utilized shapes to represent notes (fa-so-la-mi) for untrained and even illiterate church members. Only four notes were used in the hymns. An old Anglican practice, English colonists first brought the tradition over to North American in the 1600s. These are field recordings from the Florida Record Project. That project, along with work for the North Florida Project, resulted in the two-album recording, Drop On Down in Florida.
