The clip linked below takes you to a video of Arthur “Peg Leg Sam” Jackson, a harmonica player, singer, and comedian who made his living “busking” on the street and performing in touring patent-medicine shows across the south . Footage from this film includes excerpts from one of his last medicine shows, videotaped at a county fair in 1972, as well as material filmed near his home in South Carolina in 1975. Harmonica solos, songs, a parody of a chanted sermon, folktales and reminiscences, and three buck dances are all included in this charming and interesting glimpse into the life of “Peg Leg Sam” .
I found this video a few months ago and fell in love with it. It is long, about 30 minutes, but well worth the watch if you have the time.
note: Here is a link to the transcript, just in case you need it.
