Eddie Bowles (1884-1984) learned to play guitar in New Orleans alongside Louis Armstrong and Kid Ory, and he lived most of his life in Cedar Falls, Iowa. All recordings on this album were made when Eddie Bowles was in his 90s, and many have not been heard since. You can listen to the album online for free (click HERE or on the album cover). It is also available on all major music platforms and streaming services. Click HERE to check out the full album liner notes. If you are in the Cedar Falls area, make sure to check out the Eddie Bowles's Blues exhibit at the Hearst Center for the Arts, which runs through March 27.
