Eind augustus Lomax tribute op Ancienne Belgique
1959 â€“ 2009: Alan Lomaxâ€™ legendary journey of musical discovery through the Southern part of the United States, at the side of young British folk singer Shirley Collins, took place a half century ago. A fine reason for the AB to dedicate a number of events to the work of this intriguing man. Not only an extensive concert reeks in your familiar concert hall but also a photo exhibition in the MiM (Musical Instrument Museum) and a retrospective in Cinematek (the Royal Belgian Film Archive). Because Alan Lomax was not only a â€˜songhunterâ€™ but also a fine photographer who registered all his recordings on film. He also made five documentaries between 1978 and 1985, which will be shown in Cinematek together with a series of related films. One of them is the MM production 'Lomax The Songhunter' by director Rogier Kappers.
