Como's Celebration in the Panolian

Posted on the 07 February 2012 by Laolga @olgabluebabe
The procession up Main Street that kicked off Como's Hill Country Blues Celebration is pictured on the front page of today's (Feb. 7, 2012) Batesville paper, The Panolian! We Como citizens were celebrating the fact that many historic photos, recordings, and films of our local musicians - most of them made by musicologist Alan Lomax in 1959 and in the 1970's - were being placed in the Como Library. Thanks for the historic items, as well as for the Celebration, go to many folks and organizations, but especially to the Alan Lomax Collection, the Jessie Mae Hemphill Foundation, the Association for Cultural Equity, the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, Como Librarian Alice Pierotti, and singer Olga Wilhelmine.
