'81 DM Spoleto NM

In the decades since its inception in 1979, the Spoleto Festival USA has established itself as a leading performing arts festival. On 8 July 1981 Channel 11 (PBS?) aired a 30 minute report on that year’s jazz program, Spoleto ’81 – Now You Has Jazz. It included footage of “the legendary Ray Charles in concert plus outdoor performances by Betty Carter, Taj Mahal and Randy Weston”.

Who knows more?
