Marty Stuart on Photographing Music Legends and Eccentric Americans
Thursday, August 14, 2014
Marty Stuart, five-time Grammy-winner and Grand Ole Opry star talks about his photography. After he was discovered at age 13 as a music prodigy by Lester Flatt, Stuart toured with Flatt's band and began photographing what he called "the history in the making" going on around him. Stuart’s new book, American Ballads: The Photographs of Marty Stuart, includes often candid behind-the-scenes pictures of legendary musicians, eccentric characters from the back roads of America, and portraits of members of the Lakota tribe in South Dakota, people he was introduced to through his former father-in-law, Johnny Cash. He also talks about his upcoming performance at Joe's Pub.
