Episode 3 features a showing of Neil Rosenbaum's documentary film entitled "Sing My Troubles By".
This feature-length documentary honors older Georgia women who treasure and continue t perform the gospel, blues, mountain music, and ballad tradition they grew up with.
The four main segments of the film feature Blue Ridge Mountain ballad singers, sisters Mary Lomax and Bonnie Loggins; early African American spirituals and gospel performed by Rev. Willie Mae Eberhart and nonagenarian blind piano player and singer, Mother Fleeta Mitchell; a mountain string band and harmony singing group, the Myers Family and their friends; and the acoustic guitar and singing of south Georgia country blues woman, Precious Bryant.
