    Mississippi John Hurt (1893-1966)

    Heroes of the Blues Trading Tees Card #33

    Art by R. Crumb Text by Stephen Calt

    John Hurt was born in 1893 at Teoc, Mississippi, and raised in nearby Avalon. He took up guitar in 1903, developing a soft singing style and a unique three-finger picking technique. Never a professional musician, Hurt rarely traveled before or after recording twelve sides for Okeh in 1928, but his 1960's rediscovery helped launch a blues revival, and he performed and re-recorded songs such as "Coffee Blues" and "Richland Woman" to great acclaim before his death in 1966. Mississippi John Hurt was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame in 1988.

    A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this Keep On Truckin' Apparel exclusive t-shirt will be donated to Music Maker Relief Foundation.
