The People

I am humbled by all these folks that I met back in 1971 and over the last couple of years. Sadly, some have left us, yet I'm thankful their music and stories will remain forever. Some are creating new and exciting blues stories - historians and hospitality entrepreneurs, musicians and art dealers, state officials, museum managers, and travelers from Arkansas to Australia.
