Join CCV members, volunteers and friends for a unique gathering that will help us test out a new program series - Celeb Salons.
We'll gather next Sunday, April 8th, 4-6pm at Mort Subite Belgian Pub (308 Congress Ave. in downtown Austin). Our featured guests will be brothers Dean Blackwood (Revenant Records, Dell attorney by day) and Scott Blackwood (PEN USA award-winning local author). They will discuss their collaboration on the Grammy award-winning 2-volume collection of early Paramount Records recordings (1917-1932).
"How did a Wisconsin chair company, producing records on the cheap and run by men with little knowledge of their audience or the music business, build one of the greatest musical rosters ever assembled under one roof? The answer lies in 'The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records 1917-1932,' an epic, two-volume omnibus of art, words and music housed in a limited-edition, hand-sculpted cabinet-of-wonder, jointly released by Jack White's Third Man Records and John Fahey's Revenant Records:
Paramount vol 1-2."
