Andrew Dietz at FolkFest, Last New Works by Two of Alabama's Greatest Artists?Sunday, August 20, 2006
I just found out that Andrew Dietz, author of The Last Folk Hero, is at Folk Fest in Atlanta right now signing copies of his book.
Back in June, I wrote about TLFH - if you have the chance, definitely get it. If you're anywhere close to Atlanta, this weekend is a great opportunity to see the work of many of the people in the book, and to meet the author and get a signed copy.
The AJC has another article about Folk Fest here and here (where they mention that there will be no new works by either Mose T or Jimmy Lee Sudduth shown this year). This article mentions the market value of the two artists' work.
