The video documentary presents the filmmaker’s impromptus visit with Jimmy Olgers, a natural-born performer of the sort academic folklorists would label a “verbal artist.” Olgers is “on stage”, i.e. performing, throughout the encounter, much as he would do, presumably, in response to a visit by any inquisitive stranger who stops by his converted storefront Museum. The piece engages the viewer in an emergent experience, framed by the filmmaker’s first-person point of view in a skillfully executed hand-held camera style and developed through the filmmaker’s spontaneous interaction with Olgers and two friends who happen to be present – and constitute a kind of in-group audience.” - Gary Barrow, Folklorist

Thank you for making this available to as wide an audience as possible. You have done us all a service by documenting local cultural traditions which are quickly vanishing. I will be sharing this with all who care.
