Voices of Mississippi: Artists & Musicians Documented by William Ferris

DUST TO DIGITAL



3cd + dvd + book set

Released: 1st Jun 2018

£57.99


This watershed release - compiling 3 audio cds, a documentary film and detailed historical book - represents the life’s work of William Ferris; an audio recordist, filmmaker, folklorist, and teacher with an unwavering commitment to establish and expand the study of the American South.

Ferris began at a young age documenting the artwork, music, and lives of the people on his farm and in his local community. The archive of recordings that he created and the documentary films that he had a hand in producing have served as powerful tools in institutions of higher learning for decades. this is for anyone with an interest in the early roots music of the American south, in the same vein as the excellent ‘american epic’ and ‘rough guide to…’ series.
