Abstract/ Summary

I could have listened to Sparky Rucker for the entire 4 1/2 hours. That's how long the Friday night installment of Folksongs in February was. Sparky Rucker was the last performer of the evening, going on at 11:40 [p.m.]. Believe me, at that hour, his performance was like a shot of adrenalin. Six hundred pairs of eyes and ears suddenly snapped to attention. Black southern traditional music presented with such explosive, energetic, boot-stomping depth—what a finish!!
