Leaving the dusty ghost town streets of the Southwest and the mysterious haunting beauty of the Badlands far behind, GRAMMY award winning guitarist Eric Tingstad continues to explore America's musical and cultural landscape, this time taking his listeners on a cruise down Old Man River on Mississippi.
"Mississippi is one of the most unique musical experiences I've had in a while. Its' blend of Americana, blues, country, folk and more, portray the heart and soul of an area that is a melting pot of cultures and traditions, and a breeding ground for new music forms that followed. Eric Tingstad is truly a sultan of stringed instruments who has his fingers on the pulse of music of the past, with an ear for contemporary interpretations"
In Mississippi the music flows like the river
In Mississippi we find her roots in her fertile soil
In Mississippi the legends of our heritage were born
In Mississippi our spirit is lifted by who we may become
