Waterfront Blues Fest 2017 Portland Waterfront Park, 2016 Special "Heroes of Field Recordings" Edition Original Signed and Numbered Silkscreen by Gary Houston
This terrific special edition by Gary Houston was created in conjunction with the 2017 Waterfront Blues Festival, and is dedicated to the "Heroes of Field Recordings" -- ethnomusicologists such as Alan Lomax and Thomas Hopkins that traipsed around the south seeking out the then-virtually unknown purveyors of one of America's most treasured art forms, the blues. It depicts a young man listening intently, headphones on with his car trunk full of recording equipment, while an old bluesman plays his resonator guitar and sings into a humongous carbon spring microphone. Gorgeous colors, beautiful paper and execution.
