Spirtual Roots

Advertisement

Blues legend Josh White (guitar & vocals) performs the spirituals "Joshua Fit The Battle of Jericho" and "Blind Man Stood on the Road" on camera during the 1960's.

When he was eight years old Josh White would became a lead boy for blind musicians starting with the obscure Blind John Henry Arnold. While working for another blind religious minstrel Joe Taggart he traveled to Chicago where he appeared with Taggart on his first record in 1927. He started making records of his own in the early 1930's as "Josh White - The singing Christian" but soon began leading a double life as an artist adopting the pseudonym Pinewood Tom for his blues records to shelter his deeply religious mother.
