Mississippi Arts Hour – David Evans

David Evans Going Up Country Book cover

This Sunday, Larry visits with David Evans, a retired University of Memphis professor and music researcher, on his new book “Goin’ Up the Country: Adventured in Blues Fieldwork in the 1960s.” It recounts his trips to Mississippi and Louisiana during the mid-1960s to interview and record the last of the first generation of blues musicians. The book is a collaboration with the late folklorist Marina Bokelman, who collaborated with him on the project.

Tune in to hear their conversation this Sunday at 5 p.m. on MPB Think Radio, or subscribe to the podcast through your favorite podcast app.
