Son House, Skip James and John Hurt, Newport, RI 1965
This is the only photograph ever taken of Son House, Skip James and John Hurt, the three most influential blues icons from the 1960s.
Although they were all from Mississippi, their paths never crossed until they were rediscovered and came back for second careers.
This picture was taken at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.
