Sugar Babe was the first piece I learned, when I was a little boy about 13 years old. Reason I know this so good, I got a whippin' about it. Come out of the cotton-patch to get some water and I was up at the house playin' the git-tar and my mother come in; whopped me cause I didn't come back - I was playin' the git-tar. Yeah, I got a whippin' bout Sugar Babe - I never will forgit that one - Mance Lipscomb, from his biography

Tribute to Big Bill Broonzy
« on: March 03, 2007, 01:40:13 AM »
This was emailed to me by Robert Riesman and pass on for those who might be in the vicinity of Old Town School of Folk Music, 4544 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60625 next month.
Thought you might want to see that the Old Town School is launching its 50th anniversary season with a tribute concert to Big Bill. Bill was the featured performer at the school's opening night on December 1, 1957.

One of the great bluesmen (and close friend of the Old Town School?s founding fathers Win Strake & Frank Hamilton), Big Bill Broonzy (1893-1958) actually played at the School?s opening night in 1957.
