Biography

Very little is known about the life or career of Blind Leroy Garnett, apart from the supposition that he came from the Fort Worth area of Texas. A pianist whose style encompassed boogie-woogie and ragtime, he recorded eight sides between 1929 and 1930, featuring vocals by James Wiggins (himself a highly talented blues pianist) and Marie Griffin. Two of his Paramount Records sides were recorded with Wiggins in Richmond, VA in October of 1929. ~ Bruce Eder~ Rovi
