Birth: Mar. 4, 1909

Musician. He was a string band fiddler who took his act across the country mastering genres from bluegrass to jazz. He taught himself to play at the age of 9 and over his lifetime took up 20 instruments including mandolin, violin, viola and banjo. He was a composer, instrumentalist and singer. Two PBS documentaries, "Louie Bluie" in 1985 and "Sweet Old Song" in 2002 chronicled parts of his life and work.
