John Smith Hurt: An Interview and the Mississippi John Hurt Blues Foundation
October 4, 2006 9:04 PM Subscribe
Here is the Mississippi John Hurt Blues Foundation
, the website, which is the creation of one Frank Delaney of Spokane. There's a great deal of guitar related material and a page of mp3's by fans, which includes several interesting originals by one Fred Bolden, a grand nephew. I always knew he had a son who played guitar and wondered why no one had ever tried to record him. Now there is a grand nephew playing, if nowhere near as sublimely as his great uncle, in roughly the same style.Here
is an interview of John Hurt from 1963, courtesy of Stefan Grossman's guitar video empire. It is a real delight.
Consider this a follow up to this post
. Not all of the links there are good. The Mississippi John Hurt Guitar Tab Book
, for instance, is now available only in PDF
format but well worth the download. And here is an illustrated discography of John Hurt
by another Stefan, Stefan Wirz, a subject of yet another post
back in the day.
