Thread Name: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 05)
About 25 years ago, when I was running a small booking agency, Dave & Sean signed with Flying Fish Records and my friend Bruce Kaplan, the head Fish, asked me to work with them. I loved the music that they made together and I did end up representing them for a while. They also came to Montreal to play at the Golem, the folk club I was running in those days.
I didn't see Sean much in the years since. I was in Chicago in late-1986 and was on my way to Holstein's one night with Bruce Kaplan when we ran into Sean walking down the street. That was a great surprise. The other time we hooked up was at a Folk Alliance conference in the '90s when he was there with Liz Masterson.
I was very saddened to get the call last week that he'd passed away.
