Episode 7 - Diamond Teeth Mary Old Folks at Home

Inside a mobile studio on the banks of the Suwannee River during the  1997 Florida Folk Festival the legendary Diamond Teeth Mary McClain sat  down with Liz Pennock to record "Old Folks at Home." This was Mary's  last known studio recording, she was 96 at the time. Inside the studio  Leslie Gaines interviewed Mary and filmed some of the recording session.  Pete has boxes of Leslie's old Betacam tapes from the 1997 Florida Folk  Festival that Tim is digitizing. Included among those tapes, and  presented here for the first time, is that interview with Diamond Teeth  Mary and two alternate takes from the "Old Folks at Home" recording  session. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/floridafolkshow/support
