Happy Birthday!

In Greensboro, Georgia and also near Durham, North Carolina:

Sonny Terry (Saunders Terrell)

was born on

10-24-1911
[thanx Doug Henkle]
(d. Mar 11, 1986)

As with other seminal musicians, many folk have a story about him. I'm lucky to have two. My favorite was the first time I saw him. He played Child-With-Harmonica in Finian's Rainbow in 1947. Eleven years later I heard him on record playing blues and easily recognized the sound. There was no one else like him.

ALSO:
Happy United Nations Day! - The United Nations Charter became effective October 24, 1945.
        United Nations make a chain,
        Every link is freedom's name.
        Keep your hand on that plow,
        Hold on, hold on!
                From "United Nations," words by members of People's Songs, Music: "Gospel Plow" (traditional) [thanx Steve Suffet]

US poet, Sarah Hale b. 10/24/1788 (d. 4/30/1879). She is responsible (culpable?) for "Mary Had a Little Lamb" (1830).
