Happy Birthday!

In Riverton Mississippi,

one of the true greats, Delta bluesist

Son House
(Eddie James House, Jr.)

was born 3/21/1902

Mars Hill, NC: Bascom Lamar Lunsford was born 3/21/1882 (d.9/4/1973)
In 1949 he sang for the Library of Congress Folklore Division for seven days running. He recorded nearly 350 folksongs and tunes. Not bad. He shows you superb artistry on the banjo can be wonderfully effective enhancement to the ballad – not just real fast 'plunk-a-plunk.' (Ask Greenhaus to play banjo sometime, you'll get some idea of it.)

Early warning notice: This series of the Happy File noncontinues beginning April 16.
