Description
Harry Belafonte, one of Americas finest and most popular folk singers, talks here about the kinds of songs he sings songs of people all over the globe and in all fields of endeavor. Interviewed by Boston theater critic Elliot Norton, he also explains how he plans his performances, and he discusses those certain nuances in his singing style that makes it quite different from any other. Mr. Belafonte says that he is always very nervous before a performance, but that as soon as he makes contact with the audience, he relaxes and begins to unwind. During the interview Mr. Belafonte and Mr. Norton are seated in what appears to be a huge empty theater. Harry Belafonte with Elliot Norton is a 1962 production of WGBH-TV, Boston. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
