Mississippi Arts Hour with Harry Bolick and Tony Russell

November 14, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

On this episode of Mississippi Arts Hour, Melody talks with Harry Bolick and Tony Russell, authors of a new book from the University Press of Mississippi titled Fiddle Tunes from Mississippi: Commercial and Informal Recordings, 1920–2018. Harry and Tony share their work collecting the music of Mississippi fiddlers, including many previously unheard recordings from across the state.

This week’s music includes recordings by Harry Bolick as well as “Memphis Mail,” a rare recording from Mississippi fiddler Jabe Dillon. You’ll also hear “Sullivan’s Hollow” from Freeny’s Barn Dance Band, the music that inspired Tony’s work to interview Mississippi fiddlers in 1975. Listen in this Sunday at 5 p.m. on MPB Think Radio.
