    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    Peg Leg Howell was born on a farm in Eatonton, Georgia, United States, and taught himself guitar at the age of 21. Over time he became skilled in pre-Piedmont finger picking and slide guitar techniques. He continued working on the farm until he was shot in a fight, as a result of which he lost his right leg and began working full-time as a musician. In 1923 he moved to Atlanta, Georgia and began playing on street corners, but also served a period in prison for bootlegging liquor.
    In 1926, he was heard playing on the streets of Atlanta and was recorded for the first time by Columbia Records. They released “New Prison Blues”, written while in prison and the first country blues to be issued on the label.
