(Tape label) Bessie Jones at Freight and Salvage. This program is completely self-contained.
Born in 1902, Bessie Jones has spent most of her life in the Georgia Sea Islands. The music she presents is a combination of the songs and games of the Islands as well as those taught to her by her granfather who was a slave on the mainland; into this a strong Baptist influence is blended. In this program she is accompanied by her son-in-law, Douglas Quimby. The tape was recorded 9 April 1977 by members of the Women's Recording Group of KPFA. This program was produced by Martha Oelman and Joan Medlin.
