Description: Black and white photograph of two men who are participants of the 7th annual Texas Folklife Festival. They are playing bass boxes, instruments made from hollow, rectangular boxes with broomsticks that insert into the tops of the boxes. On the right is Bootsie Ehlers, sitting on top of his bass box while he plays. A microphone placed inside the opening at the front of his bass box picks up the sound of his playing.
