I Don’t Feel At Home in This World Anymore
Join Vivid Projects and Capsule for an evening of films, stories and images from the Mississippi Records and Alan Lomax Archive as told by Mississippi Record’s founder, Eric Isaacson.
Alan Lomax (1915-2002) was one of the greatest American field collectors of folk music of the 20th century. Featuring rarely seen footage shot during Lomax’s North American travels between 1978 to 1985, alongside folk blues, gospel, esoteric, international and punk music from Mississippi Records’ extensive library, the film features artists including Abner Jay, Rev. Louis Overstreet, RL Burnside, Algae May Hinton, Bishop Perry Tillis, legendary folk singer Michael Hurley and many more.
“Eclectic independent record label named after the record store located in Portland, Oregon, Mississippi Records specializes in vinyl reissues of American roots, blues, gospel, art punk, and world music, among other recorded obscurities.”

The Alan Lomax footage is courtesy the Association for Cultural Equity as part of their continuing effort to make important cultural information available to all who seek it.
