Interview with blues singer Mary McClain

Interview with blues singer Mary McClain

Date
1982-08-05
Description
Two reel to reels. 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. In the interview, she discusses the start of her career; blues music; various groups she performed with; performing with George Burns, Bessie Smith, and Sarah Vaughan; minstrel shows; her family history; her conversion to Christianity in 1962; and her work in churches. Copied on audiocassettes C83-24 and C83-25. Material used for the public radio program, Florida Home: I Started With the Blues. Copies of the programs can be found on C85-16.
