The first label tour from the phenomenon that is Mississippi Records, featuring staggering and fascinating footage of musicians shot by the world famous song collector Alan Lomax as well as archival film, images & stories carefully dug out from Mississippi’s archive, spanning 1890 to the present day.

Hosted by Eric Isaacson, who runs the Mississippi record store and label HQ in Portland Oregon, the show illustrates Eric’s own special history of underground music movements and bona fide individuals from across the USA’s wide cultural spectrum. The live footage performances are culled from rarely seen film shot during Alan Lomax’s North American travels between 1978 to 1985, as well as Mississippi Record’s own enormous library of folk blues, gospel, esoteric, international & punk music archives. Aside from the film screenings, Eric will present a slide show and a talk, take questions from the audience and, when it fits, DJ songs from his extensive 7” collection in what is a feature-length film & music presentation.
