Music From 100 Years Ago
Music from the early days of the 20th Century with comments.

In the 1940s and 1950s, Fort Valley State College in Fort Valley, Georgia hosted a folk music festival. In 1941 & 1943 professors from Fisk University recorded performances from this festival for the Libray of Congress. Today, we feature gospel highlights from this, the first African-American-sponsored folk festival.

Songs include: If I Had My Way, I Got a Long White Robe, Over In Zion, I'm on the Battlefield & I'll Fly Away.
