Mystery Artist
 
I'm normally pretty good at finding information, but this has me stumped...

I was camping out at Road Atlanta for the Petit Le Mans, and while sitting around the camp fire, a series of songs were played that I really liked. I asked who it was, and was told "BoFoo". I thought that was enough to go on, so I didn't inquire further. Of course, this could be "BoFu", "Beau Foo", "Bow Fuew", etc... I know the people quite well as I meet them every year for the race, but I have no contact info for them. They are all local to me, which would be around the Atlanta, GA area.

Some details:
  • It was a male singer in a traditional lineup.
  • It was bluesy rock with a lot of emphasis on the lead singers voice.
  • For comparison it reminded me of "Iron & Wine".
  • It could be a college band; my friends went to Georgia Southern.
  • There was one song I remember the lyrics to, but it could have been from a different artist. The lyrics were something like "Where have all the blah blah's gone". This has NOTHING to do with the Ke$ha song that fouls up my search results.

If anyone has some tips on finding this artist, I would be grateful!

Thanks!

Is this the one?
Brothers Four - Where Have All The Flowers Gone

Where have all the flowers gone,
Long time passing,
Where have all the flowers gone,
Long time ago
Where have all the flowers gone,
Young girls picked them every one
When will they ever learn
When will they ever learn

Where have all the young girls gone,
Long time passing,
Where have all the young girls gone,
Long time ago,
Where have all the young girls gone,
gone to young men every one
When will they ever learn
When will they ever learn...(edit)

Johnny Rivers had a Top 40 hit with Where Have All The Flowers Gone? in the mid-60s.

Thanks for the suggestions! I listened to both, and sadly neither was whom I am searching for. The artist I am looking for is much more modern that both suggestions (at least within the last 10 years I would guess).

Thanks, though!

Check both iTunes and Amazon.com, a long shot, but some pretty obscure stuff has popped up for me..

Chris de Burgh recorded the song on his 2008 album Footsteps. According to AllMusic.
