folk music in the Smokey Mountain
section of the Southeast.
"Handsome Winsome Johnny" is of
Scotch origin and is considered to
have arrived with the Highlanders
who settled in the mountains shortly
after the Revolution. "Ole Smokey"
is of later origin and is the product
of the descendants of these settlers.
Other folk tunes to be presented
are "Hard Time Blues," a work song,
and "Ration Song" which was origi-
nally found in Carl Sandburg's "Am-
erican Song-Bag" and revived by Lib-
by Holman and Josh White.
"One Meat Ball"
One Meat Bal," an old English sea
chantey, originally entitled 'One Cod-
fish Ball" is about 400 years old. It
has recently been revived by Josh
White with new lyrics by Lou Singer
and Hy. Zaret and has gained wide
popularity with record fans.
Miss Holman and Mr. White pre-
sent their songs with guitar accompa-
niment. The structure of the songs
is traditional, providing a framework
within which a free interpretation can
be delivered.
