Bukka White Booker T. Washington "Bukka" White (November 12, 1909 – February 26, 1977)[1] was an American Delta blues guitarist and singer. "Bukka" is a phonetic spelling of White's first name, though he preferred "Booker." Biography[edit] Born south of Houston, Mississippi,[2] White was a first cousin of B.B. He first recorded for Victor Records in 1930.[5] His recordings for Victor, like those of many other bluesmen, fluctuated between country blues and gospel numbers. Nine years later, while serving time for assault, he recorded for folklorist John Lomax. White was at one time managed by experienced blues manager Arne Brogger. White was, later in life, also friends with fellow musician Furry Lewis. One of his most famous songs, "Parchman Farm Blues", about the Mississippi State Penitentiary (also known as Parchman Farm) in Sunflower County, Mississippi, was released on Harry Smith's fourth volume of the Anthology of American Folk Music, Vol. 4.
