Accidentally blinded in childhood, Sonny Terry was one of the great harmonica players. He got his start traveling with medicine shows. During the Depression, Terry worked with such guitar players as Blind Boy Fuller and Gary Davis. He is best remembered for the work he did with blues guitarist Brownie McGhee, with whom Terry performed for almost 50 years. In addition to performing straight concerts and such, Terry also appeared on Broadway in a production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and in a couple feature films, including The Jerk (1979) and The Color Purple (1985).
