Musician Jake Fussell: Art Cafe
November 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Art Café celebrates the signature sound of Mississippi with singer and music scholar Jake Fussell, whose own music is an artful blend of folk, blues, and American roots music. In 2005, he moved to Oxford, Mississippi, where, while pursuing a master’s degree at University of Mississippi, he collaborated with bluesmen Reverend John Wilkins and William Tyler. Using clips from musical archives, Fussell reveals the complex musical heritage of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
