Subject: RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 05)
I heard from Bob Douglas about Sean and have had him wandering through my thoughts for days now. All the sessions on nicollet island, the incredible amount of gifted string players that inhabited the West Bank with Sean one of em'.
Craig Ruble and Skip Mouse and Peter O and Bill N' Judy and Soupy and Papa John and Teska's Easters and the 'cafe and Dakoty and Mike Cass and Cal Hand and the Belleville's and Bob and Pop and Charlie Jirousek and Leo Kotke and Mary Dushane and on and on all packed into that 40 acres of hippiedom and vegetarians and it was pretty swell. I learned a lot living there with all of you and him. Thanks.
Farewell to one of our own. Ask not for whom the bell tolls, indeed it tolls for thee.
