Bill Frisell: Up & Down The Mississippi
Traveling Highway 61
"My father was born and grew up along Highway 61, way up in Minnesota, not far from Bob Dylan's childhood home. That road starts in New Orleans, follows the Mississippi River, up through the Delta, Memphis, St. Louis, Davenport, all the way up to the Canadian border. To think of the music that has sprung from up, down, and all along this way is truly staggering. The main artery. I am excited, humbled, and honored to have this opportunity to explore some of the many possibilities with these great musicians. I can't wait to dive in." - Bill Frisell
In the grand series finale of two years and six dynamic performances of the Roots of Americana series, Guitarist Bill Frisell, along with saxophonist Greg Osby, pianist Craig Taborn, and drummer Rudy Royston, embarks on a musical journey along the revered route, which Bob Dylan famously immortalized in 1965.
