Legendary Blues Musician Captain Luke has entered hospice care and is now resting at his home in Winston-Salem. He was born in 1927 and grew up driving mules, working the land and singing with family. He met Tim Duffy in the 1990s and together they formed the Music Maker Relief Foundation. Duffy and Captain Luke told their story in the StoryCorps Mobile Booth when it visited WUNC last year.
Luther Mayer, otherwise known as Captain Luke, is receiving calls and cards from fans that are being forwarded by the Music Maker Relief Foundation.
