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 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.
