Episode 5 TX Date 13th June - Grassroot Recordings By the 1933s John Lomax is in the Mississippi Delta recording blues singers like Lead Belly and across the next decades folk and traditional music is captured and preserved. From Woody Guthrie to Bob Dylan we trace the legacy of songs and tunes handed down the ages like 'Where Did You Sleep Last Night?' a Lead Belly song recorded by Nirvana. The story of how sound recording captured the voice, songs and stories of grassroots singers in Ireland and across Europe and the US. Featuring the story of Guthrie's anthem 'This Land is Your Land'.
Video Made by John Gallagher - This is just amazing! its as if John Gallagher heard the programme before it went out and cut this together. Love it. The photos are quite poignant and perfect they way they all melt into Dylan at the end. Thanks John!
