A legendary blues musician and songster, northern Louisiana’s Lead Belly got his start in his teens and twenties playing in bars. We may never have known who he was if it hadn’t been for the Library of Congress field recordings done by John Lomax- Who first recorded Lead Belly while he was incarcerated, exposing him to the rest of the country. While the relationship between Lomax and Ledbetter eventually soured, Lead Belly continued working with his son Alex. After years of recordings, live performances, and tours, Lead Belly was still struggling to be recognized for the talent that he was. Sadly, it was only one year after his death that his songs started becoming widely covered by popular musicians, finally giving him his long overdue credit.

We print on 100% American grown cotton shirts. More info on the shirts and fit can be found on our sizing chart. Model is 5'9", 165#, wearing a Medium.

All prints are done by hand using only the highest quality inks with a discharge print method. Normal screen printing lays ink on top of a shirt, but discharge printing actually changes the color of the shirt fibers. This is a more time consuming process that requires precision, but results in a higher quality/slightly vintage look to the print, and a completely nonexistent hand-feel after the first wash.
