The musicians that didn't know music could play the best blues. I know that I don't want no musicians who know all about music playin' for me - Alberta Hunter

Happy 120th birthday, Bo Carter!
« on: June 30, 2012, 01:19:14 PM »
Hey Bo Carter fans -- TODAY is actually his birthday, per Carter's draft card, which was unearthed by Michigan-based researcher/gravesite-funder/festival-organizer Steve Salter fairly recently (and reported by me in Living Blues).
In case you missed that: the WWI draft card, signed by Carter, lists his birthdate as June 30, 1892 (not March 21, 1893, as most books state).
So put some Carter tunes on the stereo or sing some, have a banana, and celebrate! Cheers, SC

How fortunate that we're planning on grilling hot dogs tonight.  I'll warm my wiener in honor of Bo.    :D

I ate two bananas and would have done a wee tribute song if'n I'd known. Tomorrow will have to do _ i'm sure the man would have partied for days.
