Happy Birthday!

In Tulsa, Oklahoma: marine biologist/collector/singer/harmonica player/folklorist & a few other things
(& maybe the only man alive that knows more songs than Utah Philips - some 1200, actually)

The really rare

Sam Hinton

was born

3/31/1917

and retired from public performances April 2002

Autoharper, Adam Miller has written a three hundred page biography of Sam

Bio and more

ALSO:
The first black heavyweight champ (12/26/1908) Jack Johnson was born 3/31/1878 (d.6/10/1946)
As we have it, Johnson was refused passage and a wonderful cruise on the Titanic because, said the captain, "I ain't hauling no coal." In the long run Johnson probably didn't mind so much. See Leadbelly's version of the song.

Early warning notice: This series of the Happy File noncontinues beginning April 16.

Sam Hinton is such a great all-around musician and folklorist. There was a thread here a year or two ago about his remarkable harmonica playing.

Here's his web site.
