by GuitarDomain

Vetern blues guitarist Eric Bibb has dropped the latest single from his upcoming album Dear America, Emmett’s Ghost – a blues-soaked, acoustic guitar-driven eulogy that pays tribute to Emmett Till, who was murdered in 1955 at the age of 14.

Released today (July 23) to coincide with Till’s birthday (July 25), the track sees Bibb reflect on the brutal crime by way of poignant lyrics and emotive six-string constructions. The accompanying video features an extended introduction from Bibb, who speaks of Till’s story and the impact his murder had on the civil rights movement.
