Mississippi Fred McDowell - John Henry


About The Video

As bottleneck guitarists go, Fred was a killer!

Unlike so many of his contemporaries who recorded in the late '20s-early '30s and were later rediscovered in the '60s, Fred McDowell did not record until 1959 (at the age of 55) when Alan Lomax came across him on a road trip.
