Cootie Starks

My friend Dennis and I went to visit his friend, Cootie Starks, in Greenville, SC.  Cootie is a bluesman (in the Piedmont style), who lost his sight many years ago.  He has been named a recipient of the 2005 South Carolina Folk Heritage Award by the South Carolina General Assembly and Arts Commission.  .Dennis has worked with the Music Maker Relief Foundation for many years and has helped to take care of Cootie during tours.   Cootie's health has declined recently and we traveled to Greenville to visit with him, play some guitar and have fun.
