GUEST,John Fern Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 2005) (76* d) RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 2005) 20 Jan 08

It was only in the past year that I learned of Sean's passing. I was in high school when I first heard some of his radio interviews and performances on a station that was anything but mainstream. Sean was a BIG influence on my own singing and playing, and I learned as many of his songs as I could to entertain my own freinds and family.
Later when he teamed up with Dakota Dave, I got the album "Ace Pickin' and Sweet Harmony," and learned many of those songs that my brother, Joe, and I would sing together attempting the harmony of Sean and Dave.
I had lost that album and many others in a flood some time ago, but Jani was kind enough to send me a copy on CD. Since I'm into the Youtube videos now, I did a version (with Dave's permission) of "The Old Campaigns," and posted it back in September.
I always wanted to do a version of "When You Go," and finally put together a video with that song also. It will soon be up on Youtube, and even though it started out as a cover song, I added some of Sean's audio and video to make it more of a tribute to Sean.
My Youtube user name is johnfern99 if you want to check it out.
