Lonnie Pitchford
Lonnie Pitchford playing his one string guitar and building a diddley bow
from "the land where the blues began" by Alan Lomax.
The late Lonnie Pitchford can be seen and heard here playing the diddley bow, a one string instrument of African origin.
Mississippi blues musician Lonnie Pitchford, used to demonstrate the Diddley Bow by stretching a wire between two nails hammered into the wood of a vertical beam making up part of the front porch of his home.
Unfortunately, his life was cut short in 1998 at the age of 43. Lonnie's headstone, placed on his grave in 2000 by the Mt. Zion Memorial Fund, is actually designed with a playable diddley bow on the side as requested by Pitchford's family.
