This watershed release represents the life’s work of William Ferris, an audio recordist, filmmaker, folklorist, and teacher with an unwavering commitment to establish and to expand the study of the American South.
William Ferris was born in Vicksburg, Mississippi in 1942. Growing up on a working farm, Ferris began at a young age documenting the artwork, music, and lives of the people on the farm and in his local community.  The archive of recordings that he created and the documentary films that he had a hand in producing have served as powerful tools in institutions of higher learning for decades.
It is with great excitement that we present these films and recordings. Our hope is that the enjoyment and educational value that has been received by Ferris’s students over the years will be tr…


Artist Biography by Jason Ankeny in allmusic 
Backwards Sam Firk was the tongue-in-cheek alias of next-generation bluesman Mike Stewart, who created the character in homage to fingerpicked guitar pioneer John Fahey and his "Blind Thomas" character. Born September 18, 1943, in North Carolina, Stewart derived his alias from a lifelong nickname: "My dad used to call me Backwards Sam because my initials are MAS," he later explained. A member of the postwar generation that rediscovered the recordings and eventually the current whereabouts of the veteran bluesmen that spearheaded the music's golden age, Stewart was a true country-blues guitar purist with a remarkably authentic technique and feel. He cut his first recordings for famed record collector Joe Bussard's Fonotone imprint, and later collaborated with Fahey as well. Stewart first attracted wide attention with the release of The True Blues & Gospel of Backwards Sam Firk, a collection of deeply felt blue…
