Mississippi Records hit the road

The US label’s travelling show addresses the history of recorded music

Mississippi Records is taking to the road to deliver A Cosmic And Earthly History Of Recorded Music According To Mississippi Records – a lecture, film and slideshow event attempting to tell the story of recorded music in just 90 minutes. Previously featured at The Wire's Off The Page festival in Bristol in 2014, it's presented by the label’s founder Eric Isaacson, and includes unseen film clips from the imprint’s archives, DJ sets by Golden Wilson of Olvido Records, and a Mississippi Records merch table selling more than 30 titles (while stocks last).

The tour takes place throughout January and February. A full list of dates can be found on Mississippi Records' website.
