Kennedy Center, Royal Albert Hall celebrations of Lead Belly being planned, says biographer John Reynolds
"This year marks the 125th anniversary of Lead Belly's birth," writes New York photographer and Lead Belly biographer John Reynolds (Lead Belly: A Life in Pictures, 2008).
"Gala tribute is planned for Kennedy Center (October 12) by Grammy Awards committee. On November 18 another gala concert will be held at Royal Albert Hall in London. Huddie's 'Stella' guitar may be onstage for both venues. All very exciting."
