Just read of another boogie-woogie legend's death this week. I was lucky to have seen the man in Sacramento in '04. RIP

I saw him in British Columbia probably back in '87. I just realised he passed away. As boogee woogee brother number one Nuno Alamarz sang in the 60's "the doo wop will never die"

Wow '87, thats before the Salmon Arms festival (which is a great little 3dayer). I'd say he had the place on fire back then. He'll be sadly missed.......

It was the year that Teddy Seymore did his thing and became the first black man to sail around the world - there was a big jam at the end and all the artists sang his praises.
I think I still remember. Im not sure if any others made note of the lyrics, I never forget a good song,

I cant understand why he never recorded it.

The Ballad of Teddy Seymour.

And this wasn’t sung in a gentle voice more like screamed out!

"Show them ones with no hope, when you sail plast the the cape of good hope ,

the rocky seas that can made a man weak at the knees,

I never forget this day when I heard the man say, Lord!

"Teddy done did it"

"He see dry land, now he the man"
