This episode is from the WNYC archives. It may contain language which is no longer politically or socially appropriate.

Eighteen year-old South Carolina folk singer (as well as Café Society darling and WNYC favorite) Susan Reed performs in American Music Festival's program no. 94, accompanied by her Irish harp and of course her zither.

Damaged disc.

Rundown: Pt 1:
Go away from my window
On Springfield Mountain
The cruel mother
Song of twelves
I wonder as I wander

Pt 2:
Mother I would marry
I'm sad and I'm lonely
The devil and the farmer
Black is the color (of my true love's hair)
Lord Randall
Soldier, soldier, will you marry me?
