Steve Salter at the grave of John Henry Barbee, Restvale Cemetary, Chicago.
Steve Salter of Killer Blues is on a mission to place headstones on the graves of forgotten Blues musicians. He has been an interview guest on the Blues Summit, telling us how funds raised through the sale of “Buried In The Blues” calendars go to the cause. His latest headstone was placed in Chicago at the site of Bluesman John Henry Barbee.
Also, thanks to Bruce Iglauer of Alligator Records, Emery “Detroit Jr.” Williams Jr. has a headstone too. This will be featured in the 2011 calendar available October 1st!
The Blues Summit gets all of our birth and death information from the “Buried In The Blues” calendar. You can support Steve’s project by purchasing one, or “The Blues In Me” original art work. They would make a great holiday gift for that Blues lover on your list! To learn more, click here.
The Blues In Me
Bluesman Kenny Neal
It was a rockin’ good way to start the Labor Day Weekend! The Swamp Blues of Blind Pig Records artist, Louisiana’s Kenny Neal was a GREAT show!!
The Kenny Neal Band from Louisiana performed at the Theater In the Wood, Friday, before a small but totally appreciative audience! Said Kenny, “Sometimes the small shows turn out to be the best!” Amen to that!!!
Since Kenny is of the Baton Rouge Neals, an incredibly musical lot, brought up musically by the their dad, harmonica blues legend, the late Raful Neal, he was joined on stage by two brothers, Frederick on piano & Darnell on bass.
Kenny Neal Ripping It Up!
Blues Summit host Roy Prescott had a great chat backstage & post show with Kenny Neal! Roy picked up Kenny’s new Blind Pig CD, “Hooked On Your Love” , before it hits the shelves! You’ll hear cuts off it on the next Blues Summit!
Kenny Neal to appear at the Theater In The Wood, Fri. Sept. 3!
