The Lomax On Lomax Show

October 7, 2023 7-9pm

The Lomax on Lomax Sho - Saturday, Oct. 7

Four generations of Lomaxes have been finding, recording, promoting, preserving, and presenting unique American music for 140 years.

John Lomax III will sing some of the best known of the cowboy songs John Avery Lomax discovered as well as selections by his father, John Avery Lomax Jr., “The Dean of Texas Folk Singers”, uncle Alan and aunt, Bess Lomax Hawes. Lomax will talk about the songs, the circumstances of their discovery and delve into the work of some of the lesser known Lomaxes — together, the family has produced fifty-two books, dating from John Avery Lomax’s 1910 “Cowboy Songs & Other Frontier Ballads” to Alan’s daughter, Anna Lomax Wood’s “Songs of Earth,” published in June, 2021.
