Mississippi Fred McDowell


16 x 20 in a black new but distressed looking frame. Fred was a porter at the Peabody Hotel for 20 years before he got discovered by Alan Lomax down in some backwoods recording session Lomax was running down in Mississippi. Fred was originally from Tennessee , i dont know who gave the
Mississippi name, there were already about 14 blues guys named Mississippi something…he lived around Como, Mississippi…a doodoo hole of a town.,

if he had lived long enough, his friends might have called him McDLT..the hot side is hot and he cold side is cold…
