You see, she liked these young musicians, and in comes John Work and I - we were young to her. We were something sent down, and she didn't know which one to choose. Each of us knew we were not choosing her! We just wanted to talk, but she was interested in other things - Sterling Brown quoted in Ma Rainey and The Classic Blues Singers, Derrick Stewart-Baxter

Willie Doss
« on: May 18, 2008, 04:13:45 AM »
built a little Wille Doss discography (only his Newport Folk Festival 1964 recordings available, as far as I know) at http://www.wirz.de/music/doss.htm

Questions: Anybody knows anything about the whereabouts of the man (provided that he's still alive, which is most unlikely since he's been born 1899)?, any knowledge about date and location of his death ?
I wasn't able to find anything on the internet ...
Any response appreciated !
Stefan

There's a footnote to Len Kunstadt's lengthy review of the three day event which reads:

Vanguard records did a lot of field recording here at the festival. Certainly hope they captured plenty of good blues and gospel sound for all to hear.

With hindsight I think it's safe to say they did the artists proud....
