This was followed by a McLean tribute, including stories and performances by Southwind, Fitchen, Frank & Ann Thomas, Kennedy, Todd, and Williams.

The Black Hat Troubadour, a nickname for the hat he usually wore, authored over 3500 songs, and was a national figure on the folk music scene. A fifth generation Floridian, he died in 1990, the year after he won the Florida Folk Heritage award.
