    Heather Luttrell is also a painter. I'm pretty sure that is a self-portrait.

    Walt Busby, the guitar player with Heather Crosse, teaches guitar at the Delta Blues Museum. Christone 'Kingfish' Ingram was a student there.
    Bill 'Howl-N-Madd' Perry was another of Christone's instructors. Posting about Bill Perry is a good excuse to show his daughter Shy.

    Steve Azar is from my hometown in Mississippi. This was filmed in and around Greenville, and at Ground Zero in Clarksdale. Morgan Freeman is part owner of Ground Zero. That bridge at the end is now gone. Steve Azar is the main person involved with putting on the Mighty Mississippi Music Festival in Greenville every year.

    Earl showing some of what he could do with that guitar. Earl was a cousin of John Lee Hooker from the same area near Clarksdale. B.B. King, commented, "to me he is the best of modern guitarists. Period. With the slide he was the best. It was nobody else like him, he was just one of a kind".

    Sid Hemphill (1876 - 1963) was an American multi-instrumentalist and bandleader who played in his own string band mainly in Mississippi. He recorded for Alan Lomax in 1942 and again in 1959.
    Born in Panola County, Mississippi, Hemphill was the son of a slave fiddle player, crafted instruments, and was a blind musician. Trained as a multi-instrumentalist, he could effectively play fiddle, banjo, guitar, jaw harp, piano, organ, quills, and the cane fife, while also penning songs.
    Sid Hemphill was for decades the musical patriarch of the Mississippi Hill Country. He and his band comprised of Alec "Turpentine" Askew, Will Head, and Lucius Smith; like Sid, all from Panola County, Miss. were fixtures at dances, picnics, and frolics throughout the triangle formed by Memphis, the Delta, and the Hill Country. Alan Lomax recorded Blind Sid in August 1942, near Sledge, Mississippi, where his band was appearing at a country picnic and banging out their breakdowns, marches, and square-dance tunes, as well as several blues ballads composed by Hemphill himself.

    Sharde Thomas on drums in the previous video is the grand-daughter of Otha Turner. Otha Turner was very influential in keeping the western African tradition of fife and drum music alive playing bamboo fifes that he made. Sharde is keeping the music and the tradition of the picnics at Otha's farm alive since Otha's death in 2003. This video features a much younger Sharde with her grand-father.

    Garry Burnside in post 59 is the youngest son of R.L. Burnside. Garry and his brother Duwayne are the only sons of R.L. that I recognize in this video from the early 1990's documentary. R.L. spent most of his life working as a tractor driver. Fred McDowell was one of his influences, they were from the same area.

    Kenny Brown was taught how to play guitar by Joe Callicott from post 29. After Joe's death, he learned from RL Burnside. He was second guitar in RL's band until RL's death.

    Quite the buffet you're laying on here, Jimmy. I find myself stopping in for a snack several times a day. I enjoyed this one particularly.

    Thanks, Jim. I've been wondering if anyone was paying any attention. Cedric has been adding more guitar playing to his shows lately.
