Episode Title: 
Mike Farris & The McCrary Sisters

"It's music with dirt on its feet and sweat on its back," says FARRIS. Here is one of the most powerful & emotional singers around, backed by the stirring vocals of the MCCRARY SISTERS—Ann, Regina, and Alfreda—daughters of Sam McCrary, a prominent member of the a cappella Gospel group THE FAIRFIELD FOUR.
