Cortelyou Odell Badgett (1905-1978)

The Badgett Sisters of Caswell County won a North Carolina Folk Heritage Award in 1990 for singing spirituals, hymns, and gospel songs in the jubilee style, a form of unaccompanied close harmony learned from their father, Cortelyou Odell Badgett (1905-1978). Their albums include Just A Little While to Stay Here and The Voice That Refused. Badgett Sisters Parkway in Caswell County was named in their honor. (Courtesy Connie Badgett Steadman.)
