I met Spencer several years ago in Silverhill, Alabama. A small, one red light town, where he was performing at Blue Moon Farm with a handful of other musicians in the round. Each musician would play one of their songs while the others harmonized or added their own little melodic bits.
The farm has been a special place to a lot of people. Everyone who came would add money to the hat for the musicians to split. They’d bring a potluck dish, a lawn chair, and a cooler.
I was fortunate enough to record several of these shows over a year, including a couple with Spencer. His performances were nothing short of hauntingly magical.
He was always kinda and genuine. A soul that can never be replaced. He passes away June 8th, 2019 in New Orleans.
