Sonny Terry
(24 Oct 1911 - 11 March 1986)

Born Saunders Terrell in Georgia, the blind harmonica player probably did more than anyone else to advance the art of harp accompaniment - his harp could produce an astounding variety of sounds. He worked alone until 1939, when he met guitarist and singer Brownie McGhee and formed a partnership that would last until the 70s. He recorded with many other people, including Cisco Houston and Woody Guthrie in the famous album of traditional American songs made for Moses Asch in the 1940s.
