Gloria Matlock and Michael Nix reach deep into the centuries-old tradition of African American song.

With a powerful and authentic voice, Gloria sings gospel songs, spirituals, story songs, work songs, songs of slavery and emancipation, and present day freedom songs.

Michael explores the African-American roots of banjo playing from early gourd instruments to arrangements and compositions for the modern seven-string instrument of his own design.
