He was a wonderful man who gave of himself to everyone. He welcomed to the stage the seasoned performer and the beginner. David Lee Durham was all about others.
He died at home on Thursday morning January 24th of natural causes. When he dropped me off from a blues affair the night before he died, his thought was of getting some of his famous potato pies made for some visiting blues folks. I have been told that pies were in the oven as the ambulance brought David Lee to the hospital.
He was my dear friend and I will miss him. At this time, musicians are talking about having some blues benefits and memorials for David Lee. I will try to let you know what I know as these are announced. His funeral is scheduled for Saturday, February 2nd, at 2 pm at Reverend Walker's Church on Church Street, Indianola Mississippi. I have no other address.
In the all the time that I have known David Lee he never failed to tell me when we parted "I will see you tomorrow if it is God's will".

The performers were great, the crowd was awesome and the judges had difficult decisions to make. As you can see in the pictures everyone had a great time.
