|Introduction||Little of what is thought to be known about Georgetown Fats can be substantiated however; some people have winnowed some of the obvious tall tales and legends away from a more plausible truth. Georgetown Fats was born into a small clamming community, of Portuguese and Scottish descent and of modest means. It was Fat’s Great Grandma who first introduced Fats to music. Great Grandma Fats balanced playing Dudlow Joes at the local silent movies and gut bucket fisherman watering holes at night, with playing church hymns on Sunday. In efforts to stop young Georgetown Fats from gnawing at her piano stool while teething, Fats’ Great Grandma came up with the idea of giving the young Fats his first Ab blues harp. The rest, as they say, is history.|
