Title: " American Folklife Company--Part 1 "
The American Folklife Company is a group of folk artists from the country and the city who represent the diversity of American cultural life. The program begins, perhaps fittingly, with a slave story told by Bessie Burke. Then she and the Sea Island Singers sing the old slave protest song, "Throw Me Anywhere in that Old Field, Lord." Mike Seeger follows with a breakdown on the Jew's harp and "Victory Rag" on the autoharp. Finally, America's dance heritage is demonstrated by the Blue Ridge Mountain Clog Dancers.
