...in a car wreck in a little town called Mound Bayou Miss. I was visiting my mother. I drove 700 miles from Chicago. I was okay but on the return I fell asleep at the wheel. I was playing again the next day though. I never gave up. It cut my arm clean off and left it in the highway. Then I walked 2.5 miles to a girlfriend and picked up my arm and brought it on to Clarksdale. When the ambulance men come with stretchers, I was in bed smoking, so I drove back in front with the guys. I was in hospital for three days only. For a while I still had pain at night. As you know, fever rises at night and that's how it was - Big John Wrencher on losing his arm

Sept. 9-13 -- Berkeley Old Time Music Convention
« on: July 05, 2009, 01:48:21 PM »
Hi folks,
The Berkeley (California) Old Time Music Convention website has just been updated with schedule, bios, etc.  Not country blues exactly but definitely related and if Benton Flippen's fiddling isn't the blues, I'd like to know what is!
Five days this year, Sept. 9-13 --- for those Weenies into the fiddle-and-banjo side of things, you might want to check it out!

See some of you there, maybe??
