Subject: Folklore: The life and Music of Sam Hinton
From: blindboybutler

My name is Andrew Butler and I'm a folk singer from Oldham in Greater Manchester, UK.

Between 2000 and 2004 I was lucky enough to have corresponded with Sam Hinton, via emails and letters. He shared much of his knowledge of folk music with me as well as a number of musical recordings, essays and the like.

Since that time I have been busy writing a book about Sam's music, his place in the wider context of folk music and the musical landscape from which he emerged.

Sams family have kindly given me his unoublished autobiography.

I am now in the process of writing about Sam's guitar style. Starting with his Library of Congress recording I am slowly trying my best to notate how he played the songs.

If anyone ever saw Sam perform or can help in this that would be a huge help.

Please contact the American songster, Larry Hanks via his website. Sam was a lifelong inspiration, mentor, and friend to him.

The American folk singer Michael Cooney credits Sam Hinton with stimulating Michael's interest in folk music. You can find Michael's email address on his web site, http://www.michaelcooney.com/.

(There's also an Irish piper named Michael Cooney. That's someone else.)

Sam Hinton, along with Johnny Walker, were a big part of the San Diego Folk Song Society. I'd suggest that you contact the Society for sources.

Here is a nice piece about Sam Hinton's daughter who helped preserve native languages of our great Southwest...

Adam Miller did a lot with Sam Hinton, and might be able to help you out. He can be reached through his Website, http://www.folksinging.org/. Adam and pianist George Winston produced Sam's wonderful harmonica album, Sam Hinton: Master of the Solo Diatonic Harmonica .

I think I heard that Adam was working with Sam to record all the songs that Sam knew. I wonder how far along they got on that project by the time Sam died.

Sam played a brush style with his fingers not unlike a trad up-picking banjo player.
He would pick a melody note with the index finger and a thumbed bass note interspersed with brushing the chords. He played many musical counterlines to his singing in this way. His style had a lilt to it and it was unique.

Starly, If anyone can set you straight on this, it's Stringsinger himself;---he's a great musician who could break down anyones picking style and diagram it for the students at Chicago's Old Town School Of Folk Music in the early 1960s.

I can read what Struingsinger (Frank Hamilton) wrote here, and I can HEAR Sam Hinton clearly in my head. It's right on the money.
