Thread Name: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 05)
Sean will forever be a presence for me and all of the people he charmed and entertained in Western, New York. Imet Sean and his then partner Dave Hull in the late 70's and just three years ago heard them in Rochester, NY at the Strong Museum where he and Liz contributed to their series of American Music. I invited them to perform and give a lecture in a Western Literataure class at the school where I teach and he wowed everyone with his jokes, lariat tricks and extensive knowledge of our Western heritage. He'll be missed by more people than I can count. Partner, "We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when, some sunny day!"
