Columbus S. Perry (January 20, 1922 – February 5, 2009), better known as Piney Brown, was an American R&B and blues singer and songwriter, who has been described as a "fine, big-voiced shouter". He released a string of singles between 1948 and 1988 and issued two albums late in his career. His songs have been recorded by Little Milton and James Brown.



Perry was born in Birmingham, Alabama, and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, and joined his family's gospel singing group. He relocated to Baltimore in 1940 and made his recording debut as Piney Brown for Miracle Records in 1947. Of the four songs that were recorded, only one was released, "That's Right, Little Girl", issued by Esquire Records in the UK several years later. Perry took the stage name Piney Brown from a club owner in Kansas City in the 1930s, who was immortalized in Big Joe Turner's "Piney Brown Blues" (1940).

Thomas Dartmouth Rice (20 de mayo de 1808 - 19 de septiembre de 1860), profesionalmente conocido como Daddy Rice, fue un actor y guionista blanco estadounidense que hacía actos de blackface y empleaba el habla vernacular, las canciones y los bailes de los afroamericanos para convertirse en uno de los actores de minstrel más populares de su época. Es considerado como el "padre del minstrel estadounidense".1 2 Su acto se basaba en aspectos de la cultura afroamericana y los popularizó a nivel nacional e internacional.
El personaje de Jim Crow interpretado por Rice era una descripción étnica según las ideas contemporáneas sobre los afroamericanos y su cultura. El personaje estaba basado en un pícaro folclórico llamado Jim Crow, que era muy popular entre los esclavos negros. Rice también adaptó y popularizó una tradicional canción de esclavos llamada "Jump Jim Crow".3

GUITAR NUBBIT

Imatge
Alvin Hankerson (November 23, 1923 – June 30, 1995),better known as Guitar Nubbit, was an American blues guitarist and singer. His most notable song was "Georgia Chain Gang", which was originally released in 1962 as a single on Bluestown Records.
He was the uncle of the folk music singer and autoharp player Dorris Henderson.

Henderson was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. During a hurricane when he was three years old, he lost the tip of his right thumb, which led to his lifelong nickname, Nubbit (sometimes shortened to Nub). He spent most of his formative years in Georgia and then relocated to Boston, Massachusetts, in 1945. He attempted to teach himself to play the guitar, but after a year of trying he gave up the instrument in 1949. However, by 1954, he could afford guitar lessons and enlisted Bill Bryant, a former music teacher from Rocky Mount, North Carolina, to teach him. Guitar Nubbit eventually mastered the rudiments of the instrument. He then performed locally, playi…

LITTLE ARTHUR DUNCAN

Imatge
Chicago blues singer/harpist Little Arthur Duncan was born in Indianola, MS in 1934 and raised on the same Woodburn Plantation as B.B. King. He relocated to the Windy City's West Side during the 1950s, often playing in the company of guitar great Earl Hooker; despite the unique harmonica sound produced by his custom of playing the bass notes on the right, for decades Duncan remained little-known outside of the Chicago scene, primarily appearing at his own Back Scratcher Social Club. In 1989 he cut Bad Reputation for the Blues King label, and that same year was also documented alongside Robert Plunkett and Emery Williams Jr. on Cannonball's Blues Across America--The Chicago Scene; the Delmark release Singin' with the Sun followed a decade later.








Little Arthur Duncan (February 5, 1934 – August 20, 2008) was an American Chicago blues and electric blues harmonica player, singer, and songwriter. He was a member of the Backscratchers and over his career was associated with Earl H…
