Dan Keding Bob Gibson/Chicago Mob Scene (18) RE: Bob Gibson/Chicago Mob Scene 20 Jan 99


Thanks Art. Yes, my father-in-law is Logan English's first cousin. They spent most summers together on the farm outside Hopkinsville, KY. When Tandy and I got married Logan's mother, Corilla English, gave me her son's banjo. Its a 1925 Bacon & Day Silver Belle five string, all original except the tuners and they're pretty old. Even the original case filled with playbills and posters from his gigs. I framed one from a concert with Carolyn Hester at the Byrdcliff Theatre in Woodstock, N.Y. July 23rd, 1960. I've got most if not all of Logan's recordings including a Social Security album that has him being interviewed by Oscar Brand. Great memories were in the case and in the banjo. An honor to have it. Dan
