Etta Baker In Her Own Words - Video

I really enjoy Etta Baker's music, you may remember that I posted about her when she passed away last year. May God bless her soul.

But I really like this video because it shows what a kind, simple and beautiful person she was. I hope you enjoy hearing her talk about her garden, her parents and how she learned to play guitar from her dad.

Notes from YouTube; - "Etta Baker stumped me hard. Her style was completely different. I like to think of myself as a well educated blues musician, but I must admit that I'd never played the Piedmont style, so I was a bit nervous. After a brief lesson, she kicked it off, and I just tried to keep up as best I could." - Kenny Wayne Shepherd
