Product Notes

My earliest mentors were the boogie woogie masters Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson, and Meade Lux Lewis. I discovered guitar blues with Josh White, who led me to Big Bill, Leadbelly, Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry, and eventually to the Rev. Gary Davis, whom I took to churches where he preached and sang in Harlem. Eventually I performed with him in concert and on radio in a show that launched Bob Dylan's career (reviewed in the NY Times). I've opened for Rev. Davis, Brownie and Sonny, and performed with many others in the blues and folk music scene of the 1960s and 70s. Making my home now in Columbus, Ohio I've opened for Dave Van Ronk and Jerry Jeff Walker, and in March,2002 won second place in the River City Blues Competition in Marietta, Ohio, 'kicking the butt of 16 bands,' in the words of the president of the Columbus Blues Alliance. I've performed in the 2000 and 2002 Traditional Blues Festival in Columbus, with Ann Rabson, Lloyd Spiegel, Mr. Downchild, Bierdorf and Kolbe, and Little Toby Walker. Blues Makes Me Happy is my second solo album.
