Former Allman Brothers Band “Tour Mystic” and world renowned photographer Kirk West sits down to talk about some of his favorite music. He’s seen it all, and has taken photographs of most of it. West’s career began in Chicago in the early ’60s, where he photographed Frank Zappa, Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, to name a few. Later on, he found himself on the Outlaw Country Circuit, and some of his photos of Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, George Jones (Shirtless) captured some of the most iconic moments in country music history. Then there were the Tom Waits’ years, Bob Marley, the list goes on and on. Into the Mystic will take on a different form each episode. We might here all blues, we might hear all country, we might hear obscure jazz. The common thread will be phenomenol stories from the life of one of our favorite photographers. Gallery West is located at 447 Third Street in downtown Macon.
Join tour mystic Kirk West every Wednesday at 7 p.m. as he delves into the deeper side of the music.
