I met John Hurt through Mike Seger in Newport in '63. His agent, Tom Hopkins said we could sit and talk. Of course it was a festival and I was sitting backstage with him and a few people. A month or so later he was playing at the Philadelphia folk festival. I saw him approaching me and I started walking briskly to him to ask if he remembered me, I was in my early 20s, and when I got near enough, he said 'Hey Man! Do you remember me!?' hehe! That explains Mississippi John Hurt! Instead of me asking, he did! - Jerry Ricks, http://www.blueschat.com/tscripts/bc062198.htm

Blues Night at the 449 --Trenton NJ
« on: February 22, 2007, 10:12:30 AM »
March 7th, 2007. 7:00pm-10:00pm
The 449 Room
449 South Broad Street
Trenton, NJ

   Starting March 7th, I'll be hosting Blues Night at the 449, a regular event running Wednesday nights from 7:00pm-10:00pm. The evening will be a mix of performances by myself and others, as well as an open acoustic blues jam.

   There are plenty of open mic/jam nights in the area (including Mondays at the 449), but this is the only one devoted exclusively to blues. The format is flexible, and will probably be decided and revised during the course of each night. But I'm hoping to feature plenty of local talent, so anyone interested in performing should definitely contact me in advance. That being said, walk-ins are certainly welcome.

   The show is all ages and admission is free.

   Anyone who needs further information, or who wants to reserve a slot to perform, should contact me at JimA2985@yahoo.com

Hey Jim,

Welcome to Weenie Campbell. And Thanks for posting this notice. I hope we see more like it from other folks.

I will definitely be out there in the coming few months, perhaps more than once. My folks are down in Woodbury, but we make it up to Princeton to visit my partner's old stomping grounds. I'll let you know when the next trip shapes up. If you want, search the Back Porch for topics started by me to hear a few of my tunes. Start at about page 6 as I haven't posted any recently. These are all pretty much works in progress, which is the idea when posting to the BP. I played a blues open mic at the Pontiac Grill in Philly a while back and was the featured artist the following week. It'd be a hoot to play in Trenton. Might be able to get a few friends to come in.

All for now.
