Florida Folksong - Alphabet Song

Bahamian Americans British Americans vocals Ethnography Music Conch songs Alphabet songs Religious 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. The sound quality of this recording is extremely poor. It has been included online because the melody line can still be identified.
