Description
Second part of one reel-to-reel tape. Jones, Marshall, Henry, and Goldie perform religious songs accompanied by unidentified singers. Rev. Haynes and a visiting pastor conduct a religious service for an unidentified Methodist church in Eatonville, Fla.
These recordings were made as part of the first Works Progress Administration's (WPA) Federal Writers' Project (FWP) recording expedition in Florida, conducted by Lomax, Hurston, and Barnicle. These recordings are copies of acetate disks housed in the American Folklife Center, Library of Congress, numbered AFS 350 through 354. While the full recording is unedited, some of the track selections have been spliced where skipping or dropouts occurred.
