Culture

The singers of the Cross Roads Primitive Baptist Church are featured on the 1978 LP "Children of the Heav'nly King: Religious Expression in the Central Blue Ridge" (recordings from the Blue Ridge Parkway Folklife Project conducted by the American Folklife Center in cooperation with the National Park Service, ed. Charles K. Wolfe), singing the hymn "Children of the Heav'nly King."

The old-time banjo player Haywood Blevins was recorded at Baywood by Peter Hoover on August 25, 1961, and the banjo player James Spencer Caudill was recorded at his home in Baywood by Blanton Owen on March 21, 1974; both of these recordings are housed at the Library of Congress's Archive of Folk Culture.
