1908-1990

Flora Molton sang what she called "spiritual and truth music," a combination of traditional religious songs and her own compositions. Born here in Louisa County, the daughter of the Reverend and Mrs. William Rollins, she began singing in church. At local parties she heard slide guitar played with a knife, a style she adopted to accompany herself. In 1937, she moved to Washington, D.C., to make her living playing music on the street, and was known and loved by the generations who encountered her there. She also performed at festivals and clubs, recorded three albums, and was featured in two documentary films.
