Description Religious music in the Southern Appalachians covers a wide panorama. At one extreme, the fundamentalist Baptists regard any music as the "devil's work," and at the other the Holiness church centers the fervor and intensity of it's services on hard driving, highly rhythmic music. This film focuses primarily on the Holiness church experience depicting the exuberant preaching, and singing that often border on reckless abandon. Chase the Devil which succeeds and captures many other aspects and byways of isolated mountain music and culture including the haunting archaic religious balladry of Dee and Delta Hicks and Nimrod Workman, the old-time banjo playing of Virgil Anderson, the fiddle-band stylings of the Roan Mountain Hilltoppers, a traditional baptism in a river, a visit with an old recluse who communicates with Jesus via a broken auto antenna.

This DVD is encoded for Region 1 (U.S. & Canada only) and will probably NOT be viewable in other countries.
