Boo Hanks, one of the last of the old time Carolina Piedmont blues players died on Friday April 15. He grew up sharecropping in Vance County, N.C., where he learned to play guitar from his father and from listening to Blind Boy Fuller on a wind-up phonograph. During his later life,he recorded several CD projects for the Music Maker record label and performed throughout North Carolina and the south as well as Belgium, Lincoln Center, NY and Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival. He will be missed by his family and music fans. Condolences may be sent to C. H. Harris Funeral Home : http://harrisfhc.com/obituaries.aspx

May your guitar never be out of tune, may you never break another string.

Rest well, Boo!
