All About Blues Music‘s Today’s Memory
Blind Willie McTell’s birthday
Originally shared by All About Blues Music
Blind Willie McTell, the superb Piedmont fingerpicker, was born on May 5th 1901 (or maybe 1898 or 1903!)
Blind Willie’s twin legacy is his fine collection of recordings, and the catalogue of superb songs he left us, which have enhanced the careers of Bob Dylan, the Allman Brothers, Canned Heat & many more.
