Four audio cassettes. Recordings of the Beers playing and discussing various folk songs (German, Irish, mountain songs) they have collected over the years.

In 1966, they also began the popular Fox Hollow Festival in upstate New York. In 1972, Bob beers died in car crash. His daughter still performs as Martha Nagler, and Evelyn continued performing at Florida Folk Festivals well into the 1970s. In addition to music, Evelyn would often perform puppet shows at the festivals. Tapes are badly warped.
