Country-blues singer/guitarist John Smith Hurt (1893-1966) was discovered in the late 1920's. He made several recordings and then returned to sharecropping in Mississippi during the Depression. In 1963, two young blues musicians set out to find him, and did, at the age of 71. Rediscovered, he recorded and played clubs and folk festivals in the Northeast US until his death a few years later.
