Back in Santa Fe after a great roadtrip with Magic Betty. We went to Flagstaff,AZ to play a gig with David Bromberg and then headed to Clarksdale,MS where Stan Street & I re-united to do a Duncan Street at The Hambone Gallery. Fine delta blues and lots of international blues lovers in the audience.
Next was Greenwood,MS and a brief acoustic set before the Elizabeth Billups book signing for her beautiful book ” Ireland: One Island, No Borders”. Had a chance to see the Tallahatchie Bridge made famous in the song “Ode To Billy Joe” and also Robert Johnson’s ( alleged) gravesite.
Then a rockin’ Friday Nite at Ground Zero Blues Club. Backed by my great Mississippi band ( John Allouise on bass, Josh McDowell ( drums) & Bill Perry Jr.( piano). we rocked the house all night and had a mighty fine time doing it.
A quick run to Nashville , where we took in a Jason Isbell show at The Ryman Auditorium, and then back in the ( so called) Tour Bus for the 1200 mile drive home.
