Winnsboro, Part 2 - Nelle McMaster Sprott | Palmetto Places

Kaltura

Bethel Associate Presbyterian Church is one of Winnsboro’s many historic churches. Nelle McMaster Sprott was the organist for over thirty years, and played a major role in teaching music to schoolchildren. Mrs. Sprott joins to talk about some of the songs she used to educate schoolchildren throughout her career. 

Mrs. Sprott was the composer of a number of songs well-known by S.C. students, some of which were used for the Tricentennial. “Stand Tall for South Carolina” was known by many South Carolinians, and was used by the S.C. Rural Electrification Company. Mrs Sprott also composed the “Sandlapper” theme song, used in the SCETV series.
