Joe McMurrian and Darka Dusty pay tribute to the Anthology of American Folk Music
We're joined by local blues guitarist Joe McMurrian to talk about legendary Portland native Harry Smith and his Anthology of American Folk Music (1952), which will be saluted Saturday night at the Mission Theater, 7-10:30 PM, with Harry Smith's One Kind Favor: A 90th Birthday Hometown Tribute to the Anthology of American Folk Music, featuring a host of local artists. Joe will perform a song he'll play at the show, and we'll also hear a live tune from powerhouse singer Darka Dusty. We'll listen to tracks from the Anthology as well as covers of its songs by other artists. And, to kick off our annual Dylan birthay celebration, we'll hear Bob's versions of some of 'em, too.
