People - Eddie Rollins, Singer

Eddie Rollins, 82 at time of this interview, worked in the woods and on pulp drives along Kennebec River as a young man. He learned some songs from his father, who also worked in woods, and more from his co-workers in the woods. He had a particularly extensive knowledge of “blackguard” or “blaggard” songs (a comic and vulgar song style).
