James Dean “Jermy” Hall


Wed, Feb 5th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Obituaries

James Dean Hall, who was known as Jermy to his friends, passed away peacefully in his sleep, on January 25, 2014.

James was born January 23, 1952 in Lanesboro, Minn. After graduating from Lanesboro High School, he moved to Winona, Minn., and later to Minneapolis.

His work as a musician took him across the country, from the West Coast, to the East Coast, to the Gulf Coast, and across the ocean to Jakarta, Indonesia as an artist, street performer, and traveling troubadour.

But over the yeas and miles, nothing diminished his strongest ties to the beautiful bluffs and cliffs of the Mississippi and Root River valleys that he loved. He camped and fished the river banks taking inspiration for his songs and poetry from the boathouses, sand bars, backwaters, and people he met. He performed in bands and solo, in clubs, bars, coffeehouses, on radio and CDs, and in his favorite place to play, the streets. He wrote books of short stories, philosophy and poetry; he played drums, mandolin, harmonica, bass, and his acoustic guitar was signed by Donovan, Johnny Winters, Willie Murphy, James Cotton and others at his request. He was the feature of many local and national newspaper and magazine articles and appeared in TV documentaries that highlighted the cultural scenes in both Fillmore County and Minneapolis.

He was a passionate gardener who kept impressive gardens, no matter where he lived or traveled. His music, his kindness, his gentle spirit and his love of nature, including the people he knew, will be greatly missed; he was unique.

James is survived by his children Kira Nelson of Minneapolis, Sean Beaverson of Robbinsdale, Minn., Jamey Hall of Minneapolis and Molly Hall of Minneapolis his siblings Daniel Hall of Spring Valley, Minn., Margo (Daniel) Shanks of Canton, Minn., and Wayne Hall of Canton; his grand children Madeline Scamp, Julian Hall, Molly and Emily Beaverson, and many nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents Leland and Shirley Hall and brother, David Hall.

In consideration of the current weather, a Memorial Service is planned for late February.
