Daisy Kentucky USA Date:1962 Duration:2 min 57 sec Sound:Yes
The lives of Appalachian mountain people in a depressed area of Kentucky, and how they cope with poverty and maintain their traditions and dignity through music. DAISY, Kentucky: Roscoe Holcomb, an unemployed construction worker seated on the swing in his house amidst the mountains. He smokes and talks about spiritual music, and how it is a God given gift. He begins to play his banjo. Dogs bark near a hand pump in the vicinity. Old houses nearby. Holcomb's family seated in the patio. He plays the banjo as a man tap dances beside him. Holcomb sings 'Little Bridge'. Clouds over the mountains, thick woods, a church nestled among the clouds.
