This Historic Day In Music: A Triple Header

What do the Stephen Foster song “Oh! Susannah,” master fingerstyle guitarist Leo Kottke and the single version of The Beatles’ song “Love Me Do” all have in common?

They were all (kinda, sorta) born on September 11.

“Oh! Susannah” had its first public performance in Pittsburgh. PA on September 11 in  1847.

Leo Kottke was born in Athens, Georgia on September 11, 1945.

The version of “Love Me Do” that was released as the first single by The Beatles was recorded on September 11, 1962.

For more detailed information about these three historic events, please visit my blog archives for September, 2010 and find the September 11 post titled “On This Day In Music History: A Triple Header.”

A splendid read is guaranteed for all!

    On a similar Music note (no pun intended); Both The Avett Brothers and Dave Matthews Band released albums today! If only pre-orders would actually show up the day you wanted them to!
