Deeper Mississippi John Hurt

Join us as we peer into the music of Mississippi John Hurt, performed by contemporary artists with some bits and pieces of his own music. We’ll also feature some fragments from the original interview conducted by Tom Hoskins in 1963 after some simple sleuthing, in the town of Avalon not far from Hurt’s boyhood home of Teoc, Mississippi. The story of his rediscovery after the sixties folk revival (and Harry Smith’s original Anthology of American Folk Music) is legend. Sit back on a Friday morning and listen in for some of the great music of the minstrel from Teoc
