Story of author of ‘Statesboro Blues’ comes home

“They say no one could sing the blues like Blind Willie McTell. And why not? His life was the blues. The Great Depression-era guitar virtuoso overcame poverty to pen and perform many memorable songs, including “Statesboro Blues,” an ode to his adopted hometown.

A new collection at the Georgia Southern University library celebrates McTell’s life and legend.”

Full story in the Savannah Morning News here (be sure to check out the photos & video on that page!).  More details and photos of the collection here.
