Ten thousand river commissions, with the mines of the world at their back, cannot tame that lawless stream, cannot curb it or define it, cannot say to it 'Go here,' or Go there, and make it obey; cannot save a shore which it has sentenced; cannot bar its path with an obstruction which it will not tear down, dance over, and laugh at - Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi

Kenny Brown

Hi All,

Just posting that Kenny Brown, the Mississippi North Hill Bluesman as part of a Patreon learning project  he started, posted three that he learned from Joe Callicott. He studied and learned from Joe Callicott. I seem to remember him telling an audience that Callicott was his first teacher.  The project is listed below if anyone is interested...

Kenny was at Port Townsend a couple of years ago, nice guy, fun to talk with and a good teacher.  He spoke of Joe Callicott as a neighbor, friend and mentor.  It was pretty clear that Joe was a big influence on him personally and musically.  Kenny and his wife ran a small blues festival near his home, which if memory serves is around Holly Springs. I'm not sure if that's still going on.

Hi Eric, I would have liked to hear him talk about that - but he has elsewhere in clips I found on youtube.

Yes, I checked and I think that he and his wife host the North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic which is going on this June. He and his wife Sarah were co-founders it says online.
