Check this site out if you like documentary films of delta blues singers, louisiana mardi gras yard country yard party's cowboy poets, gospel, .....they got a little bit of everything and it's all uncut, free and very darned good to look at.

Hey Kat,
If you watch nothing else on there, you gotta see Peg Leg Sam Jacksons Film. Talk about blues, that guy's had 'em and kept laughing about it the whole time. This site is a real treasure trove of stories and real music. Bobertz and I have been past Othar Turner's house shown in that film.   Mr. Otha and his horse is gone now, but everything else pretty much looks the same there. Good films, I wish I had DSL, but they work well if you let them pause and forget about them til they load up.

I just discovered folkstreams.net evening, thanks to a link hg posted to facebook.    Lots of documentary films about the "musics of the people."

Just watched "A Singing Stream:A Black FAmily Chronicle" about a family a couple of counties over from me that shares their wonderful music and family tradition of singing (I enjoyed the informal singing at the family reunion and on the matriarch's porch as much as anything). It also reflects the effects of discrimination, and of the civil rights movement on a rural African-American family over several generations.

From another comment to her link, sounds like the site may have expanded a good bit, so thought it worth refreshing this thread, just in case I am not the only late comer to this resource.

Janie

the movie on there now is of a water powered saw mill
and the making of a horse-drawn sled for the snow...

a reminder of how important video archiving is...
to capture the past...to preserve it for the future...
