THE WORD IS OUT! THE FACTS ARE IN! DOUBLE TROUBLE BLUES FEST WAS A SUCCESS!
Homer Henderson, King of the One-Man Blues
Newest Member with Honors:
ROBERT CRUMB, famed artist and creator of Heroes of the Blues Trading Cards, who writes "I also did a card series of old-time jazz musicians, another one on early white country music performers, and after moving to France, a series of great old-time French musette accordionists. In the works is a series of old-time singers and musicians of India recorded in the 78 era. A lot of this old Indian music is their own form of the blues. Same with old Greek music and old music of the Muslim countries. Equally as great, as soulful, as poignant as the old-time blues of black America. Just so you know." --
