Killer Blues Headstone Project Turn To Casey Bill Weldon

.
(Prog) The Killer Blues Headstone Project, which aims to mark the graves of previously lost blues artists, have turned their attention to 1930s pioneer Casey Bill Weldon.

The location of Weldon's body had been forgotten in the intervening years, but was recently identified in an unmarked lot in Kansas City's Lincoln Cemetery.

Arkansas-born Weldon was known as the "Hawaiian guitar wizard" in his lifetime and is best known for his songs Somebody Changed The Lock On My Door and We're Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town.

His unique use of Hawaiian steel guitar is thought to have influenced country music, and he was one of the first bluesman to use amplification in 1938, at the end of his ten-year recording career. more on this story
