Oklin Bloodworth, Singer Who Shared His Music with Children

“Jazzy Jaguar”–Video on YouTube

Oklin Bloodworth was a retired school music teacher who made numerous recordings and performances to and for children. He was primarily known in California’s San Joaquin Valley, according to his obit in the Fresno Bee, but you can find his numerous recordings on iTunes, Amazon and on Spotify.

On Spotify, Bloodworth’s albums are centered around months of the year. I’ve featured a track from his birth month of January.

While he was most known for children’s music, he also performed more adult-friendly music as a singer and guitarist. His father, who died in 2014 at age 87, was a blues guitarist and singer.
