The artist that you're listening to or are in love with, they were usually listening to three or four people within the framework of the style they were in. What you're essentially tryin' to do is play every giant of country blues's music as well as them, every song, in every style. Impossible! Give it up! - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

I was going to post that notice here, thanks for covering for me Don.
I was trying to make the unveiling of the marker, but couldn't get off work. There were only a handful of folks there, I wonder if more than two had ever listened to a BWJ recording. Work day at 1pm is hard to gather for. I had given my son a word sheet for a BWJ song and we were going to bring our guitars, too bad.
