Diggin’: Eddie Tigner – Route 66
inTheir Musicon July 7, 2020
Eddie Tigner was a tiny man with a big smile that could knock you down from across a room. Born in Macon, GA in 1926, Eddie cut his teeth playing for Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famers – the Ink Spots. A veteran of WWII and longtime touring musician, Eddie finally settled in Atlanta where he became a fixture on the weekly blues scene and worked at a local elementary school in the cafeteria. Eddie hooked up with Music Maker in 1998 which led to two albums and several tours across Europe in his golden years. Sadly, Eddie passed away on April 18th, 2019 but his music lives on.
