Blues Benefit shows

My sincere thanks go out to everyone who has sent donations and good wishes since I was diagnosed with cancer in June. Several benefits have been organized to help with expenses, including one on Oct. 20 at the Surf Club in Hyattsville, Maryland, put together by D.C. bluesman Chester "Memphis Gold" Chandler and another on Oct. 28 at Knucklehead's in Kansas City headed by Baton Rouge's Kenny Neal. Kenny is also working on another date at Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago, possibly on November 19. More details will be posted as available.

In the meantime, I am receiving chemotherapy and so far I've been able to continue to work at my laptop doing writing and research for the Mississippi Blues Trail. I have lots of writing and research projects still to do and it's been gratifying to have the warm support of friends in the blues community.
