Sad to learn of the passing of banjo legend Lee Sexton. I learned about him from the film Linefork. The videos here can let you hear some of his music and see a glimpse of his life in a beautiful part of Kentucky.
A true Kentucky legend. It was always a treat to watch Lee Sexton play at Seedtime on the Cumberland. Imagining how far his influence spread and the weight of his presence was always surreal. To hear locals talk about him was to hear awe and respect synthesized.
Heard that Letcher County musician Lee Sexton has passed. Legend has it he bought his first banjo for a buck. How cool is that? I’m happy to have photographed him in 1994.
Spent a week in Chicago with Lee Sexton. He came back from a walk, said he’d gone to a restaurant: “Man come up, said parley vous monsieur, you want some coosine? I told him, goddam you, I’ll bust your ass. They try to sell you some coosine.” RIP Leeboy
Rest in peace to old-time banjo legend and one of my favorite players, Lee Sexton, who died today aged 93. He was a master of the old-time Kentucky two-finger banjo style as well as one of the fastest, smoothest frailers I’ve ever heard. He was also a fine fiddle player.
