HERMAN E. JOHNSON

Imatge
Herman E. Johnson (born August 18, 1909 – February 2, 1975) was an American country blues guitarist. He was recorded by folklorist Harry Oster in Louisiana, in 1961.
According to his army draft card, Johnson was born in Zachary, Louisiana. He later spoke about his early life and conversion to the blues in an interview: "I had a good religious father, a good religious mother. They were both members of the Baptist church. I was the onliest jack of the family... So my life was just that way, to keep out of trouble, drink my little whiskey, and go and do ugly little things like that". Johnson's religious background influenced his later guitar styles; he learned to play the instrument, sometimes laying flat on his knees, in 1927 to undo the boredom of several odd jobs, including cotton picking, concrete mixing, and working in a scrap metal yard. Another major influence Johnson credited was reputable Texas blues musician Blind Lemon Jefferson. Johnson was still living in rural Z…

Preston Fulp, born in 1915, was a sawmill worker, a tobacco sharecropper, moonshiner, and blues and old-time guitarist. He made his recordings at the age of 78 and died a few months later in October 1993. Preston weaves stories of his life through both secular and sacred songs. He was the last original Piedmont blues from turn-of-the century Winston-Salem. -Timothy Duffy
