Subject: RE: Obit: Sam Hinton RIP September 2009
I'm so sorry to hear this. I first learned about Sam Hinton when I came across his vinyl album called The Real McCoy: Irish Folk Songs. I loved the songs (many I'd never heard recorded before) and the liner notes were invaluable.

Matt Watroba did an interview with him in the Spring 2002 issue of Sing Out magazine. I tried to find an electronic copy, but no luck. If you'd like a xerox copy, PM me & I'll send it.
