b. 25 March 1906, Covington, Georgia, USA, d. 20 September 1960, Almon, Georgia, USA. Weaver's mother taught him his first lessons on guitar, and he moved to Atlanta in the '20s, where he played with musicians such as Charlie and Robert Hicks (aka Charley Lincolnand Barbecue Bob). He made his first records in 1928, and recorded frequently up to 1935 as a solo artist, and also as an accompanist to other artists including Eugene ‘Buddy’ Moss and Blind Willie McTell. He also appeared in the groups the Georgia Cotton Pickers and the Georgia Browns. These show him as a versatile and skilled musician, whose work encompassed a range of styles from ragtime-flavoured numbers to tough bottleneck blues. In the '40s and early '50s, Weaver continued to be musically active and made a few more records, which rank among the best country blues recordings of the period.
