Music Maker worked with David Bryant’s mother, Cora Mae Bryant for many years until her passing. David’s Grandfather Curley Weaver recorded in the 3os and was a great pioneer of Piedmont Blues playing alongside artists such as Blind Willie McTell.
I had become quite close to David when his mother fell ill, David stayed home and took care of her while Music Maker sent monthly monies to assist. One time in 1997 I stopped by with Mr. Frank Edwards to visit Cora. I fell asleep on the couch and David walked in and picked up my guitar and played some of the most primitive pure guitar I’ve ever heard. David is also an incredible folk artist that makes collages from found items.
