Happy Birthday to One of the Greatest Songs in Country Music History

Category: News

Sixty years ago, in a studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, two brothers and two harmonica players stepped up to the microphones and recorded a song for the ages.

The song was "Blues, Stay Away From Me," and the participates were Alton and Rabon Delmore and harmonica wizards Wayne Raney and Lonnie Glosson.

In honor of the 60th anniversary of this great song, that is still being covered by acts as diverse as Mark Knopfler and k.d. lang, the Cincinnati Public Library's main branch is holding a forum panel this Saturday (May 9) from 3-6 p.m.
