Furry Lewis

A note from Tony Brooke: "This artist is a mystery... many years after recording a show in 1994, I looked into an artist on the album released from the recording, Furry Lewis. I then learned that Furry Lewis died in 1981. Perhaps this is a mistake or typo? More to come..."

On 4/27/1994, Tony Brooke and Cory Smith recorded the 6th annual Piano Night at Tipitina's in New Orleans, presented by the Professor Longhair Foundation. This was released in 1995 as "Professor Longhair Foundation Presents Piano Night at Tipitina's 1994" on Overture Records. The artists on the album: Tom McDermott, David Thomas Roberts, Tom Roberts, Davell Crawford, Tom Worrell, Jon Cleary, Eddie Bo, David Torkanowsky, Furry Lewis, Tommy Ridgley, and Bruce "Sunpie" Barnes.

These shows were part of a series of New Orleans Jazz Festival live broadcasts and recordings for radio station WWOZ-FM.
