This week we bring you two videos. I’d like to say it is because they were so perfectly entwined that it would be a disservice to show one without the other. But the truth is that I just couldn’t decide which one I liked better. So here is another common folk song and game you might know, with a twist.
The first video is from the Smithsonian Institute and features an interview with Bessie Jones. (The clip runs to 3:28 before changing to another game, though the whole video is worth watching.)
