We Are the Music Makers! Book & CD
“We Are The Music Makers: Preserving The Soul Of America’s Music,” written by Timothy and Denise Duffy, features over 65 photographs taken by Tim Duffy over twenty years along with stories and songs.
Of the book, B.B. King said, “We are the Music Makers highlights an essential part of our culture, providing us a glimpse into the lives of the amazing, and often little known, musicians of the American
South. Tim Duffy has taken every opportunity to sustain a dimension of Blues culture that could easily be lost forever, and nowhere is that more apparent than in his new book.”
Character sketches and black and white photographs of great American musicians Etta Baker, John Dee Holeman, Jerry ‘Boogie’ McCain, Taj Mahal, Willie King, Othar Turner, Little Freddie King, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Ironing Board Sam, and the original guiding light for the Foundation’s formation, Guitar Gabriel, are shared in the book. The book also highlights other artists nestled deep in southern culture and telling a hidden story of American music. The book also highlights the musician’s vital role in Southern culture.
The companion CD both compliments the book and stands entirely on its own. The two discs are packed with music showcasing the work we have done with artists over our 20-year history. We Are the Music Makers’ 20th Anniversary CD is something for everyone, from the most ardent music lover to newcomers to the MMRF mission.
