The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame is set to induct five new members with its 2014 class this Saturday at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa.

Blues guitarist Lowell Fulson was born to parents of Choctaw and African-American descent in Tulsa in 1921. He was raised in Ada, playing guitar at church and picnics, before landing a job in 1939 as a guitarist for country-blues singer Alger “Texas” Alexander.

He was drafted into the U.S. Navy in 1943 and served for two years before beginning his recording career. His first rhythm and blues hit came on the Swingtime label in 1948 with the now-blues standard “Three O’Clock Blues.”
