Florida Folksong - I Heard A Sweet Robin

Alternate Title: Sweet Robin, One Morning in May

Bahamian Americans British Americans vocals Ethnography Music Conch songs Temperance songs Riviera, Florida Palm Beach County

A Conch song learned in the Bahamas. The singer, an 84-year-old blind man, was born in the Bahamas and emigrated to Florida ca. 1911. The term "Conch," while now more widely used to refer to a native of Key West, Florida, originally referred to British settlers of the Bahama Islands who later emigrated to South Florida. The unique accent of the Conchs--a mixture of British and Bahamian dialects--interested the WPA fieldworkers as much as the songs and stories related by the Conchs.
