Preserving The Blues
Organized by: David Tomlinson
We are all familiar with B.B. King and Buddy Guy but there are so many more musicians out there whose stories have helped shape the landscape of music and culture. These men and women were born and raised during a time of profound hardship both financially and culturally. Many of these people are in their eighties and nineties and as the years go by their stories are lost, never to be heard again. My plan is to spend the next two years (as a start) traveling to these people and recording their history so that current and future generations will have a living history to look back on and learn from. I have contacts already in place, it is now just a matter of funding to make this happen. Your investment will go towards proper recording equipment and my expenses as I help preserve an important piece of history.
