Tony Joe White, 1943-2018

Des Butler sends this sad news of the death of a major artist in a field that, like bluegrass, springs from the realities of rural life in the South:

You may have heard the 'Swamp Fox', Tony Joe White, has passed away on Wednesday last.

Born 23 July 1943, Oak Grove, Louisiana; died 24 October 2018, Leiper's Fork, Tennessee, age 75 years.

Another great loss to country blues and Americana music. R.I.P.
