Alan Lomax was a folklorist and musicologist who spent his lifetime collecting and celebrating music and musicians around the world, recording their songs, making photographs and films. His work is interwoven with the Library of Congress and the Archive of American Folk Song. During the 1950s and again in the 1970s, attracted by the lure of north Mississippi’s unique Hill Country Blues, Lomax visited the Como area. Lomax’s repatriated recordings, photographs and film capture this unique regional Blues said to be the closest to its African roots. The collection may be viewed in the Public Library on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday between the hours of 10a.m.- 6p.m. or on Saturday from 10a.m.-noon.
