I’m very happy to invite you to my new website.
“Stories and songs link us to both our past and our future in special ways. By preserving them, we share the memory of our ancestors with future generations. A gospel song asks the question, “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.” To which we must answer, “Yes.” For as long as we remember the songs and stories of our people, the circle will remain unbroken. And the blues are the heart of that circle.”
From William Ferris’s acceptance speech at the dedication of the blues marker that honors his work, erected in Vicksburg Mississippi, on May 28, 2019.
