Georgia's Old Time Music With Jake Fussell

Nov 22, 2016

When Jake Fussell was growing up in Columbus, Georgia, he spent a lot of time on the road with his dad, Fred Fussell. Fred is a documentarian and museum coordinator who would travel around Georgia and the South examining how people lived, the things they made and the music they played. What stuck with Jake was the music. Eventually he picked up the guitar and took as his mentor the legendary Georgia fingerstyle guitar player Precious Bryant. Today Jake Fussell plays much of the music he heard as a kid in that finger picking style. Listen to Fussell from a show in the Field Note Stenographers Living Room Concert Series in Macon.
