Houston Stackhouse was born September 28, 1910,

in Wesson, MS. He died September 23, 1980, in Helena, AR,

where the Acoustic Stage at the world-famous

King Biscuit Blues Festival is named in his honor.

The mentor of Delta slide virtuoso Robert Nighthawk,

Houston Stackhouse never achieved the same commercial

or artistic success as his famed pupil, and remained little

known outside of his native Mississippi. Born in the small town of

Wesson on September 28, 1910, he was a devotee of Tommy Johnson,

whose songs he frequently covered; neither an especially gifted singer

nor guitarist, he was quickly surpassed by the young Nighthawk,

although the student repaid his debts by backing Stackhouse

on a series of sessions cut during the mid- to late ’60s.

Outside of the rare European tour, Stackhouse was primarily confined

to playing Delta border towns throughout the majority of his career;

he died in Houston, Texas in 1980. – Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
