Thread Name: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 05)
I just learned of Sean's passing through my family in Minneapolis. I met him there in '72, when we played on the same bill for some West Bank gig. He was dashing and funny and picked a heavenly guitar. We were together on and off for 9 years, and said our last goodbye in '82 before I headed West. I still sing some of the songs he taught me, and see him in my dreams from time to time. Sean was a real sweetheart and I'm sad that he's gone. My condolences to all his friends and loved ones.
Happy trails, Mr. B., till we meet again -
