dc.description.abstract Oral history interview with Willie White, Jr., July 6, 2003 and July 15, 2003. Hoboken (Ga.). Fieldworker: Timothy C. Prizer. Audio file digitized from 3 cassette tapes. Part of the South Georgia Folklife Project at Valdosta State University Archives and Special Collections. Topics include gospel music, blues (music), and turpentining. July 15, 2003 audio file includes song performances Willie White Jr., accompanied by guitar. Willie White talks at length about his life working in the turpentine woods. He demonstrates calls and hollers, tells jokes, and sings – beautifully – spirituals that he once sang while working in the woods. Willie White speaks of his musical past, from listening to his father blow the harmonica as a small child and hearing his mother sing spirituals at dawn to singing in the turpentine woods and later (and presently) directing the choir at his church. Additionally, he sings and plays guitar on a number of spirituals and gospel tunes, some of them traditional and others that enjoyed some commercial success once upon a time. en_US
