Adirondack Minstrel (1976)

About the Film

Lawrence Older [1912-1982] is a relaxed, direct and engaging performer who spent the majority of his life working in the woods. His songs and fiddle tunes are mostly from his family tradition and are representative of the local melodies and the rich musical tradition of America's northeastern states.

This stream was made from a newly restored print of Adirondack Minstrel made with a film preservation grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation.
