This program is a rebroadcast of pianist John Davis talking with Community Arts program manager Deborah Boykin about his interest in the music of Blind Tom, a 19th Century composer who was born a slave in Columbus, Georgia and who went on to tour the country playing his compositions in opera houses, concert halls, and other performance venues. In 2015 Mr. Davis visited Alabama on a tour arranged by the Southern Literary Trail in partnership with the Mobile Arts Council. He played from Blind Tom’s repertoire in Mobile, Tuskegee, and Demopolis and gave a multi-media presentation about Blind Tom’s life.
