Subject: RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 05)
Mark and I saw Sean and Liz when were all performing in Cody this Spring. This comes as a shock to us. Another fine performer gone all too soon. Garrison Keillor did a nice modification of Tom Paxton's Ramblin' Boy for Sean on a Prairie Home Companion yesterday. I heard it on the car radio on the way back from a show. He had some nice things to say about he and Liz as well. If you get a chance, catch the program. There will be a memorial for Sean across the street from the Denver Folklore Center in Denver.
This is a small concert venue that Harry set up. Liz and Sean were scheduled for a performance there. Now it will be a memorial. October 15. More info should be forthcoming on the above website.
Sean was a fine cowboy singer. Could do it all. Singing, yodeling, a fine moustache and rope tricks. What more could you ask for? Fairwell cowboy, we'll all meet again at the grand roundup.
