1927 - 2011


I worked with Charlie Louvin for two months in 2006 documenting the recording sessions with photography and video
This album cover session was at his home, plus I recorded a wonderful video interview with Charlie talking about the album,
his brother Ira and the Louvin Brothers.
Charlie Louvin was an American original, a unique man, they don't make them like that anymore.
The Louvin Brothers are renowned for their harmony that has influenced many.

Charlie was a strong positive man of 83. He held court and performed two sets

and smoked way too many cheap cigarettes at his own cancer fundraiser.

.
Alison Kraus honoured Charlie by
performing her amazing renditions of Louvin Brothers songs.
He sat on the steps by the stage, beaminjg and taking pictures with his pocket camera..
