Rare Album From Frank Hovington

Frank Hovington- Gone With The Wind



Biography:
"A tremendous country blues musician who was singing vividly and playing with flair well after the genre's heyday, Franklin "Frank" Hovington started on ukulele and banjo as a child. He teamed with Willliam Walker in the late '30s and '40s playing at house parties and dances in Frederica, Pennsylvania. Hovington moved to Washington D.C. in the late '40s, and backed such groups as Stewart Dixon's Golden Stars and Ernest Ewin's Jubilee Four. He also worked with Billy Stewart's band. Hovington moved to Delaware in 1967, then was recorded by Flyright in 1975. His '75 LP was a masterpiece, and alerted many in the blues community to his abilities."

It would be nice if you'd correct your entry on where Frank Hovington lived and played: Frederica, Del.
There is no such place as Frederica, Pa.
I've lived all my life just up the road from Frederica and I know whereof I speak.
Please, Frank deserves better.
