A once in a blue moon showcase that features a brand new live film/talk/slide show presentation by Eric Isaacson (Mississippi Records label boss and store owner) plus THREE live acts, all of whom have released records on the Mississippi Record label. Marisa plays emotive acoustic and electric whirlwinds, Lori wanders across borders with her atmospheric cello playing and DAOTW gloriously ruptures songs rooted in folk and country traditions. After the hugely successful ‘I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore: Mississippi Records and Alan Lomax archive’ Tour Qu Junktions is super proud to bring you this exciting Mississippi Records bundle. Mississippi Records is modern day record phenomena, where there is never a dull moment and run with the care and passion that it is hard to suppress. Based in Portland, Oregon, USA it is a very local shop and a very outernational record label.
Eric Isaacson who helped set up and runs a lot of the Mississippi Records labels and shop activities is also a wonderful, playful and sincere guide through the highs and lows of music history with a keen eye on the marvellous outsider types. For this tour he will introduce a brand new show film/talk presentation and his fellow travellers are three musicians with super strong ties to the label, all on the bill and performing.
Marisa Anderson is a composer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist inspired by Delta blues, West African guitar, country and western radio from the 60s and 70s, gospel, noise, rhythms, cycles, mortality and praise.
Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher. Her voice as a cellist, amplified or acoustic is full, textured, committed and original. Collaborations famously include Nirvana, David Byrne and Cat Power. Lori also co-founded Black Cat Orchestra.
Brian Mumform’s Dragging an Ox through Water perform songs rooted in folk and country traditions, though ruptured, complicated, and complimented with broken textures of feedback, drones, tape hiss, and homemade oscillators. Brian has collaborated with TJO, Chris Johanson, John Wiese, Makino Takashi, John Butcher, Gino Robair, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Vic Chesnutt, Pete Swanson, and many others.
