ABC Acoustic Blues Club – Mississippi John Hurt tribute – The Jenny Lind 12th Sept 2022

John Smith Hurt was born in Teoc Mississippi in 1892. He was a farmhand and labourer until the last few years of his life. His music was performed for family, friends and at country dances. In 1928 he recorded some blues 78’s that 35 years later led to him becoming a star of the blues revival. Come and join us as we pay this small tribute, play some of the songs and tell some of the story of Mississippi John Hurt…. with Piers Clark and Mick Knight plus Eddy Odel and possibly more!
