In 1979 Keir Cline shot footage at the Tenth Annual National Hollerin' Contest in Spivey's Corner, a small crossroads community in southeastern North Carolina. The festival had been established to raise funds for the local volunteer fire department and to pay whimsical tribute to a kind of loud vocalizing that people on isolated farms used to communicate across distances in the years before they had telephones. "Welcome to Spivey's Corner" features interviews with one of the early winners, Coharie Indian Leonard Emanuel, and performances by others who learned hollering as children.
