Interview with and music performance by blues guitarist Willie Gillard
- Three reel to reel recordings. Born near Charleston, South Carolina, he learned guitar from a neighbor. He moved to Florida to pick oranges, and played music as a sideline. He later moved to Tampa to be a plumber. 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.
