Folk Music with Rolf Cahn:
Mance Lipscomb

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 52 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

In a program originally recorded in May of 1963, Rolf Cahn and Phil Huffman talk to Texas bluesman Mance Lipscomb, about his life and music. He describes growing up as a Baptist in the South, the balance between singing and playing music, as well as the origins of many of his best known songs. Throughout the discussion, Lipscomb performs a number of both famous and obscure acoustic blues songs, often responding to requests by Huffman and Cahn, who sound as pleased as two cats in a fish pond to be there for their own private concert by this extraordinary talent.
