(B&W photographs) "The dramatic story of Jilson Setters, the blind mountaineer....from his little-boy days when he begged Old Doctor piteously 'give me some eyesight,' to his visit to London when sixty-odd. There he sang his Elizabethan 'song ballets' before the King and Queen as one of the last of the rapidly disappearing band of mountain fiddlers of undefiled Anglo-Saxon stock."
