Roy Dunn


Roy Sidney Dunn. (born.13 April 1922, Eatonton, Georgia, USA, died. 2 March 1988).


Dunn was a blues guitarist and singer, who had learned from and played with Georgia artists such as Curley Weaver, Buddy Moss and ‘Blind’ Willie McTell in the 30s, although he was of a younger generation. This meant that he missed out on recording at a time when his style of music was at its most commercially popular. In his younger days, he sang in a family gospel quartet, the Dunn Brothers, then between the late 30s and early 40s he toured with a series of other gospel groups. In the early 70s, he recorded an album, and appeared at a number of blues festivals. He was also credited as a major source of information and contacts by researchers into the blues of the east coast states.
