|BT-633 Furry Lewis|
Heroes of the Blues
During the folk blues revival in the 1960s the personable Lewis began a second career as a concert performer. Lewis opened twice for The Rolling Stones, played on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and had a part in a Burt Reynolds Movie , W.W. and the Dixie Dance Kings (1975). Furry was a charming man who was a living repository for the blues, as many of his contemporaries had passed on by the time anyone had a real interest in preserving and documenting the lives of these musicians who where among the first to record the blues.
