Hi Folks - Here's the DUBB-LETTER for July 2015...

Just back from some very successful runs. Had a great tour of England. Met some old friends, made a lot of new ones too. Got to have high tea with the Mayor of Norwich who wanted to know the story of Rosa Lee. Well, I told her and then sang "Nightbird" for her right there in her office. Brought a tear to her eye. Then I went to play the club called The Murderers. But I played the Convent before that, so I guess you could say I was protected. Even got to enjoy some of the original Guinness Beer that a few places imported from the Emerald Isle.
The festival in Krakow Poland was something else. Super people, knowledgeable audience, and get this - 95% of the audience was under 35 years old! Very special indeed!
Did a weekend in IL. Space in Evanston great audience & great sound (with Janiva Magness & her fine band). Then on to some great gigs at The WGLT Summer Series, and Blues in the Park for the Crossroads Blues Society. Flew home for a few days and then back out to KY for the W.C. Handy Blues & BBQ Festival. One of the best festivals I play! Now I'm home for a few days.
Ah, and July 4th is right around the corner. The time when we here in the States celebrate with BBQ's, Family Outings, Baseball, Fireworks, Family & Friends, and even a little Romance can be happening.
But I'd like you to remember this tried and true
'Dubb-ism' when you're celebrating:
" If you drink a
fifth on the fourth, you may not be able to go forth
on the fifth! "
Heading out to MPLS on the weekend after the 4th. Then up the Pacific Coast for dates in The Bay Area, OR, and WA. The Pacific Coast Run will include The Wine Country Blues Festival at The Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery in Woodinville WA. along with Charlie Musselwhite, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and Taj Mahal.
