Florida Folksong - [Maloney Is Dead]

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

A Conch song. The singer is the wife of Wilbur Roberts. 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.
