Charles Wolfe: Rest in Peace and Rock the Beyond

Charles Wolfe, a brilliant man and wonderful colleague and friend, has moved on. But he will live on in 15 books and many other writings on country and folk music, in compiled CDs, in documentaries, and in the minds and hearts of those of us lucky enough to have known and worked with him. Go see what you think: read A Good Natured Riot: The Birth of the Grand Old Opry or The Legend of Leadbelly.

Hope to meet you again in a future life, Charles. Thanks for being there for me so many times when I needed someone to talk to in this one.

Back during my career as a folkie musician, I met Dr. Wolfe several times. He was literally, a gentleman and a scholar. A walking encyclopedia of American music who clearly adored what he did. He will certainly be missed on many levels by many people...
