 IN SEARCH OF BLIND JOE DEATH: The Saga of John Fahey-57 minutes

Trailer- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NoXyb9AjJw

Known as the father of American Primitive Guitar, many consider John Fahey to be a foundational figure in American folk music.  As both musician and musicologist, Fahey made a fundamental contribution to our understanding and appreciation of such music genres as Delta blues, Appalachian bluegrass and New Orleans jazz.

In Search of Blind Joe Death combines interviews, performances and archival footage with animation in a kinetic, musically charged tribute to a tremendously influential composer, guitarist, author and provocateur. Interviewees include Pete Townshend, Joey Burns of Calexico, Chris Funk of The Decemberists and renowned radio personality Dr. Demento, aka Barry Hansen.

Followed by:

APPROXIMATELY NELS CLINE-27 minutes
