Mance Lipscomb & Lightnin' Hopkins
Texas is rich in space and myth, in the 1920's, it had perhaps the greatest cultural diversity of any southern state. East Texas is not particularly the Texas of cattle, cowboys and wide open plains. It has rich bottom land and cotton flourished there as did sharecropping. There were plantations up and down the Brazos River. If Mississippi had its dreaded Parchman Farm then Texas had the spectre of Uncle Bud Russell and the Midnight Special. Both were equally feared by black men in Texas. Yet within its borders, black music was vital and had a particluar style and sound all its own. In their video we will hear the music of Mance Lipscomb and Lightnin' Hopkins - two of the greatest Texas bluesmen to record.
