About Bukka White

Booker T. Washington "Bukka" White (November 12, 1909 – February 26, 1977) was an American Delta blues guitarist and singer. Born between Aberdeen and Houston, Mississippi, White was a first cousin of B.B. King's mother (White's mother and King's grandmother were sisters). White himself is remembered as a player of National steel guitars. He also played, but was less adept at, the piano. "Bukka" is a phonetic spelling of Booker White's given name, first used by his second (1937) record label (Vocalion). Read more on Last.fm
