The collection includes photographs and sound recordings of Hugh McGraw, Raymond Hamrick, J.C. Cooper, and others leading sacred harp singing; other congregational and gospel singing groups; African American children's games, singing games, handclapping, hambone; old-time and bluegrass music featuring local fiddle, guitar, piano, and banjo players.
