Blind Blake Diddie Wa Diddie.....

This is a true story .......

I met this R.N. Nurse  the first day she stayed at my place (while I was at work) she checked out my CD's ....... and when I got home she said I love all your old Blues Music .......... but why do they call themselves BLIND? .......... of course I replied ...... because they are Blind....... she thought it was maybe slang.........

I don't know if the Reverend Gary Davis makes it in or not. He's a bit later.

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2j82f_reverend-gary-davis-candyman_music

But I've always loved his finger picking style and especially the many musicians who later did his songs.
Jorma Kaukenen, David Bromberg, Steffan Grossman etc etc...

Saw Hot Tuna a couple months ago and they did an awesome Keep Your Lamps trimmed and burning with Teresa Williams and Larry Campbell helping.

Jorma Actually studied with the Reverend.
