Uncle Boo

Pick a Thon


Ready to show off your picking skills?** Think you can show other pickers a thing or two?  Or, do you want to just enjoy some great live country music? This inaugural event will feature continuous live bands and culminate with a guitar picking competition. The fierce competition showdown will be filmed and later telecast on Houstons Own Country TV Show.

William Eugene Campbell (1929-2008) born in Arkansas, is an American Guitarist. At the age of two Boo started picking on his dad's guitar, and at the age of four Boo's natural talent was known by accomplished musicians from all around. His perfect pitch led musicians to bring their stringed instruments to Boo for tuning. As a young man, Uncle Boo taught his nephew Glen Campbell how to play the guitar. Glen then became an in-demand Los Angeles studio musician playing on records for The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra. Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and many others. Glen later became and international super star as an artist in his own right, and has always given his "Uncle Boo" credit for teaching him how to play the guitar.

Gene "Boo" Campbell represents the many teachers, family members, and friends, who selflessly give up their time and talent lifting many artists to the spotlight while remaining in the shadows themselves.
