Early ‘eccentric interest’ leads to Grammy for folklorist Bill Ferris


In 2018, Bill Ferris’ decades of work in the arena of southern studies was capped by the release of a career-spanning collection of his field recordings, “Voices of Mississippi: Artists and Musicians Documented by William Ferris,” released by Atlanta-based record label Dust-to-Digital. The box set — and its accompanying book — won Ferris two Grammy Awards. (Chatham News & Record)
