PRISON MUSIC SYMPOSIUM – Spring or Summer 2016

April 8th, 2015 by DezinsAdmin

The museum’s biannual symposium is scheduled for Spring/Summer, 2016.

Due to the popularity of the 2001 Prison Music Symposium, the museum will do another prison music symposium with new and added features. The 2016 symposium plans to feature scholars of Louisiana’s music, musicians who’ve performed at Angola and former and present prisoner musicians.

Dr. Benjamin Harbert should be finishing his book about the history and development of Angola’s music in time for the symposium. So be prepared to attend a book signing. In the meantime check out the film clip for Ben Harbert’s – Follow Me Down: Portraits of Louisiana Prison Musicians

Also visit the Follow Me Down Facebook page for a number of great images taken during the filing of Follow Me Down.
