I was just checking out the panels for South by Southwest, and I saw this panel:
“Experience a multimedia presentation on the life and music of folk/blues singer Lead Belly. Alvin Singh, Lead Belly’s great nephew, will discuss how folk music has influenced, evolved, and impacted popular music today. With a mixture of rare family photos, videos, and digital storytelling, come learn the history and future of roots music.”
Damn, I want to go.
